RE: antlr-mode.el - need some support by python.el

Here as now a new version - changes to previous one:

 - fetch/rebase this morning

 - mention text-properties (good idea) and typical use cases in the
   docstring of `prog-indentation-context'

 - prog-widen: no widen for narrow-to-region case, docstring
   "should"->"can" (you are right, "should" was meant for "make it
   respect the value `prog-indentation-context'"

+  "Non-nil while indenting embedded code chunks.
+There are languages where part of the code is actually written in
+a sub language, e.g., a Yacc/Bison or ANTLR grammar also consists
+of plain C code.  This variable enables the major mode of the
+main language to use the indentation engine of the sub mode for
+lines in code chunks written in the sub language.
+When a major mode of such a main language decides to delegate the
+indentation of a line/region to the indentation engine of the sub
+mode, it is supposed to bind this variable to non-nil around the call.
+The non-nil value looks as follows
+FIRST-COLUMN is the column the indentation engine of the sub mode
+should usually choose for top-level language constructs inside
+the code chunk (instead of 0).
+START to END is the region of the code chunk.  See function
+`prog-widen' for additional info.
+PREVIOUS-CHUNKS, if non-nil, provides the indentation engine of
+the sub mode with the virtual context of the code chunk.  Valid
+values are:
+ - A string containing code which the indentation engine can
+   consider as standing in front of the code chunk.  To cache the
+   string's calculated syntactic information for repeated calls
+   with the same string, it is valid and expected for the inner
+   mode to add text-properties to the string.
+   A typical use case is for grammars with code chunks which are
+   to be indented like function bodies - the string would contain
+   a corresponding function header.
+ - A function called with the start position of the current
+   chunk.  It will return either the region of the previous chunk
+   as \(PREV-START . PREV-END) or nil if there is no further
+   previous chunk.
+   A typical use case are literate programming sources - the
+   function would successively return the code chunks of the
+   previous macro definitions for the same name.")
