I do something similar, except that, for clauses that
do not fit on one line, I put the closing paren on a
new line.  This allows for much  easier visual
inspection; also, I find it easier to read code that
has a fair amount of white-space in it; I have visual
problems reading dense, blackletter gothic coding
styles.  This may be because I skim much more
than I read, and blackletter impedes skimming.

Also I use tabs for indentation. (you can set tab-stops
as you wish)
So for example:

  (defun ttn-scheme-set-macro-indentation ()
      (goto-char (point-min))
      (while (re-search-forward
               ;; TODO: parameterize
               "  ;;#;(declare (indent \\(.\\)")
               nil t
        (put (intern (match-string 1))
             (string-to-number (match-string 2)
