If you introduce a new form using macros, it's often useful to come up
with an indentation rule for it.  Almost always, one of the rules you
can choose from in DrRacket is fine.

Matthias is right, though, that you shouldn't change how existing
constructs are indented, because that makes your code harder to read
by other people.  This includes "function application", which is I
think what you're encountering here.
