I noticed that `cond' forms in Emacs Lisp mode and Lisp mode are indented
with just one space, unlike most other "control" structures:

((x) (y))
(t (z))

Why is that?

The intention is that you do not break after cond, so it isn't treated
specially, ie. like a normal function call.


Still, it seems a bit arbitrary. Are there are constructs treated in the same manner?

Also, how is this any different from a macro like `with-temp-buffer`, which has regular indentation (2 spaces)?
