Thanks for the pointer, Darren, and I did come across that page earlier.

I should have been clearer in my original question: I'm curious about what
to do when a multi-argument function application gets split across lines.
That wiki page dicsusses how the layout rule interacts with various special
forms (let, where, if, do, case), but it doesn't seem to address function
applications, beyond implying that it's ok to indent the continuing lines
of a function application.
