I don't see that it's that different from the existing behaviour (though 
"I would say that, wouldn't I?" :-) ). Once there is some code to the left 
of the cursor, tab does nothing. In that case the "indent-to-match" 
behaviour isn't appropriate, and I'm suggesting something else to take its 

I guess if I can switch the tab key to another command or script then I 
would be happy. I wouldn't be so happy if I needed to use another key 
combination as it is so automatic for my fingers.

Alternatively I'll work on the source code and customise my copy - is the 
code still available after signing an NDA?
