Thanks for the list -- everything on it is a valid criticism and we will 
do our best to use it to improve Wing.

The only immediate quibble is smart indent, which is based on how emacs 
implements smart indent and the reason not to indent if the line is 
already indented is so the key always does the same things regardless of 
where it is on the line or the prior state of the line.  We may need to 
create another behavior here.
