(Lisp Indent): Don't describe lisp-indent-function property here.

Use xref to Lisp Manual.

@cindex @code{lisp-indent-function} property
You can override the standard pattern in various ways for individual
functions, according to the @code{lisp-indent-function} property of the
function name. There are four possibilities for this property:
@table @asis
@item @code{nil}
This is the same as no property---use the standard indentation pattern.
@item @code{defun}
Handle this function like a @samp{def} construct: treat the second
line as the start of a @dfn{body}.
@item a number, @var{number}
The first @var{number} arguments of the function are
@dfn{distinguished} arguments; the rest are considered the body
of the expression. A line in the expression is indented according to
whether the first argument on it is distinguished or not. If the
argument is part of the body, the line is indented @code{lisp-body-indent}
more columns than the open-parenthesis starting the containing
expression. If the argument is distinguished and is either the first
or second argument, it is indented @emph{twice} that many extra columns.
If the argument is distinguished and not the first or second argument,
the line uses the standard pattern.
@item a symbol, @var{symbol}
@var{symbol} should be a function name; that function is called to
calculate the indentation of a line within this expression. The
function receives two arguments:
@table @asis
@item @var{state}
The value returned by @code{parse-partial-sexp} (a Lisp primitive for
indentation and nesting computation) when it parses up to the
beginning of this line.
@item @var{pos}
The position at which the line being indented begins.
@end table
It should return either a number, which is the number of columns of
indentation for that line, or a list whose car is such a number. The
difference between returning a number and returning a list is that a
number says that all following lines at the same nesting level should
be indented just like this one; a list says that following lines might
call for different indentations. This makes a difference when the
indentation is being computed by @kbd{C-M-q}; if the value is a
number, @kbd{C-M-q} need not recalculate indentation for the following
lines until the end of the list.
@end table
functions, according to the @code{lisp-indent-function} property of
the function name. Normally you would use this for macro definitions
and specify it using the @code{declare} construct (@pxref{Defining
Macros,,, elisp, the Emacs Lisp Reference Manual}).
@node C Indent
@subsection Commands for C Indentation
