Thanks for looking at the code.  From the looking-at documentation,
it seems like it only matches regexps after the point, whereas in the
current way of doing indentation I need to match symbols anywhere in
the line, in most cases at least.  So it's not clear to me how
looking-at will help, unless I rethink the indentation code.

I don't have your code in front of me, but it sounds like you're using
buffer-substring to extract the current line and then string-match to
recognize a pattern in it.  Since looking-at only matches its REGEXP argument
immediately after point, you can search for any pattern on the current line
with (concat ".*" REGEXP), assuming you're at the beginning of the line -- if
not, just wrap it in (save-excursion (beginning-of-line) ...).
