Hmm, I don't want such behaviour. I love the ability to indent the current 
line to the right level, according to the previous code,  using TAB, 
whatever the cursor position is !!! I don't want to have to go the the 
begining of the line to do that...

Can't you use a modifier key to really insert spaces in other cases ? 
Shift-TAB, for example (as it does exactly the same as Ctrl-<)...
