These both make sense and sound pretty straightforward.

I agree with you here.  It might take some work, especially figuring  
out what the appropriate indentation is (miniAudicle Windows/Linux  
sort of gets by with a pretty dumb algorithm, miniAudicle OS X tries  
to be smarter about it but gets it wrong fairly often).  But I agree  
that its a very desirable feature.  Ill let you know when I figure  
out how to get tab key presses if youd be interested in hacking on  
this a little more yourself.
