Definitely hitting tab in the middle of a line is helpful. Also, in
constructing data structures, I would use tab to re-indent as part of
restructuring the data center. Or when you span a method call across two or
three lines.

I've actually rebinded the tab key back. I use smart indent more than I want
4 spaces inserted.

Exactly. I like showing all my Project Modules, but that list is just too
big. If it were limited to what's imported, it would be more useful. Really,
it would be nice if it just showed you what was in scope and you could use.
That is, if I import Spam.Eggs as just Eggs, it should show up as Eggs.

There's some overlap with tab completion and the source assistant, but it
seems like it would provide some unique benefits. Especially if it expanded
the Spam module as you type Spam.eggs.
