I don't think so, not without an explicit indent declaration spec in the
macro definition.

This may explain the string-match hack in the first place. I don't know
the exact motivation of the hack, but it's been there since the initial
2001 revision of the file.  Possibly before declare/indent existed?

If you're suggesting removing it entirely, I don't oppose it.  There's
the downside that indentation relying on it would start to fail, but
diffs normally spot that and this would encourage users to add proper
indent (and edebug) specs to their macros.

Otherwise, I think my macrop tweak does a slightly better job at
avoiding false positives.
