I think the attached patch works as expected. My approach is to include
only additional delimiters in new user options, since braces "{" and "}"
should always be considered to pull in indentation.

To try indent inside square brackets, include
(setq TeX-indent-open-delimiters "[")
(setq TeX-indent-close-delimiters "]")
somewhere in your init.el.

If this proposal is acceptable, I can commit it the git repo and I'd
appreciate if someone could write suitable paragraphs to include in
.texi documentation ;-) .
