to the "*scratch*" buffer and indent to observe the following result

(dolist (symbol '(ignore-errors
                    xxx
                    yyy)))

The reason why this happens is because `ignore-errors' is a macro that has

(declare (indent defun))

Any other macro with the same declaration whose innocent symbol is
used as the first element in a list would reproduce the above
indentation bug.  Backquote is also affected.

That's Bug#21922, although the backquoted case is intentional (e.g., for
writing code in macros).


I use the following trick right now:

(dolist (symbol '(;
                  ignore-errors
                  xxx
                  yyy)))

Since it's impossible to resolve that issue reliably and for all cases including backquote, I propose to introduce some special comment (aka ;###list) format to indicate that this is a list rather than code to be evaluated. In different contexts the same code could be desired to be treated differently namely either as data or as to be evaluated.
