Nice idea indeed.
I wonder what we can do about another use case which I stumble over
Usually, I like tabs in my code files. However, when cut&pasting from
(X)Emacs into IPython, readline interprets the <tab>s as completion requests.
AFAICS, a smart indent mode could help: It could simply interpret tabs at the
beginning of the line different from tabs after some non-whitespace
characters!? (/me hopes that readline does not make this too difficult)
I am very much looking forward to such a thing indeed! :-)
