Fair enough.

What about indenting a line with only whitespace?

I think I can see use cases both for special-casing and for not
special-casing indenting empty lines. Perhaps that indicates that
this, too, should be a flag. :indent-empty-lines or something?

I fail to understand what 'does not treat the first character
specially' means here. Do you have an example?
