If a user is changing between tabs and spaces, and they
have already typed 2 spaces, then want to tab the rest
of the indentation, the tab does not complete the
indentation as expected.
For example, if tabs are set at 4 spaces, and a user
has entered 2 spaces, most users expect that hitting
tab will bring them up to 4 spaces. But instead, the
tab will be placed before the spaces, and the extra
spaces will cause problems with indentation. This is
best seen with the 'view white space' option on.

    Gotcha. I will fiddle with ways to make this work.
