You are right - I put "setting the syntax table of the inner mode" on my
TODO list as well.

As I bind syntax-ppss-cache and syntax-ppss-last to nil around the inner
mode indentation, this might already work - at least if I do not set the
inner mode's syntax-propertize function... (there are probably not too
many Python triple quotes strings in grammar actions...)
