I wanted to type this:

def a(b):
    # Todo: implement this such and so

I know I can write this in 12 different ways, but I just found
it somewhat annoying that Wing refused my <Tab>.

I understand that ending the block probably makes sense in most
cases and is the default. But not ending it is also
syntactically correct and should be allowed IMO.

So I would suggest the following autoindent behavior after
1. End the block
2. Allow a manual <Tab> and indent on it

But I admit this isn't the most important feature I'm expecting
from Wing :-)
