Yeah, that's all we mean there, the whole sentence (i.e., from capital
letter to period) needs to fit on the first line.

By "docs warn against it", were you referring to

    Novice Emacs Lisp programmers often try to use the mark for the wrong
    purposes.  See the documentation of ‘set-mark’ for more information.

That's just about using that particular function for non-interactive use
cases.  If it does makes sense to use a mark for this, just don't use
push-mark or set-mark, but rather copy-mark and save the resulting mark
object to a local variable.

Regarding the indentation, here's what I get after running indent-region
over the above code:

  (save-excursion
    (let ((line-begin) (paragraph-end))
      (forward-paragraph)
      (insert "\x2029") ; use \x2029 (unicode paragraph separator) to mark end
                                        ; of a paragraph
      (backward-paragraph)
      (setq line-begin (point))
      (while (not paragraph-end)
        (re-search-forward bre-regexp)
        (if (equal (match-string 0) "\x2029") (setq paragraph-end t))
                                        ; end of paragraph reached
        (if (or bre-del paragraph-end) (replace-match ""))
        (unless (equal (char-after) ?\n) (insert "\n"))
                                        ; I don't know why but two adjacent \n
                                        ; leave an empty line after fill
        (fill-region-as-paragraph line-begin (- (point) 1)
                                  justify)
        (setq line-begin (point)))
      (delete-char -1)))

Notice especially the difference in the while loop body.  You mentioned
lisp-body-indent, but that only affects indentation increase after a
defun line.  I do see that your indentation after the let seems to be
based on 4-space tabs, but Emacs uses 8-space tabs.  If you could set
indent-tabs-mode to nil (which is what the .dir-locals in the git
repository does), that would take care of it regardless.
