I don't think it's worthwhile trying to make a "multi-major-mode" that
works with any major mode, no matter what wicked thing it does.
So it's OK to impose a few conventions that the major mode needs
to obey.  The important and difficult part is to figure what those
conventions need to be.

Of course, tweaking some parts of the C mode might help.  E.g. we could
maybe extend syntax-tables slightly so that chunk boundaries are marked
with a special syntax-table value which then makes forward-comment skip
over "other language" chunks, so that any indentation code which
consistently ignores comments would then work in multi-major-mode.
