Using this list is fine, and generally when limitations come up here,
I do tend to see them as implicit feature requests :) though specific
proposals for solutions are of course welcome.

I want to get away from these arcane patterns and instead rethink the
system. My thoughts go toward having a list of rules with ‘pattern
→ action’ where action can affect 3 things: the indent of the
current line, the general indent, and a carry. It can affect it by
either increasing, decreasing, or setting an absolute value.
That said, even this system has many limitations compared to the
indent conventions I have seen, so still not settled on anything
