[racket-dev] alt-exp syntax

I don't know if anyone cares about this, but I made a reader and #lang
language for the alternate syntax I came up with (direct, obvious
conversion to s-exp but allows writing fewer parens). Implementations
are usually better appreciated than mere proposals. You can get at it
here: http://www.neptic.com/np/software/alt-exp.php

I noticed that one can provide a syntax colorer (the default is fine for
my #lang language), but is there a way to provide an indenter since the
default handling makes editing my alt-exp syntax slightly annoying in
