That information comes from the elisp function
`slime-update-system-indentation', which is only invoked by
`slime-handle-indentation-update' which in turn gets triggered when
SLIME gets an :INDENTATION-UPDATE message from SWANK. There seems to
be some caching going on there. Can you figure out how it works?
