If a program prints TAB characters '\t', you might want to copy and paste them. For example, this is useful for pasting values in a spreadsheet.

In Mac OS X "Terminal", if you copy text with TAB characters from the screen, the TAB characters are preserved. In iTerm, all of the TAB characters are replaced by spaces. It would be better if TABs are preserved, just like in Terminal.
