This looks like treating a symptom rather than the cause, and there
may be more missing bindings.

It also assumes `C-M-q' has not been customized and is therefore
supposed to be bound to `indent-sexp', which isn't necessarily true.
But I don't think many will complain about this.

Hmm, it isn't described here.
