In most cases, I would leave the type field blank unless if they
happen to be homogeneous. They often aren't.
Arguments to pass to the callback.
Keyword arguments to pass to the callback.
But sometimes they are.
*indices : ints
Possibly multiple indices.
I don't think Sphinx has a problem with these constructs, but I could be wrong.
