LaTeX mode question

Well, I'm getting my toes wet again with LaTeX and clearly emacs is the way to compose.

When I write with a language like LaTeX, I like to think of my documents as programs.  LaTeX, among all the mark-up languages I know fits the paradigm better than most, so I'd like more programming-like function in LaTeX mode, but I don't see it immediately.

My wish list would consist of [at least] the following:
- Default indentation.  This should cover at least nested '{}' pairs and environments within environments.  Nestable structures that I don't yet know would certainly be nice too.

- Single keystrokes for common constructs (like environment definitions).  Not only would this save a bit of work, but it would ensure more consistency.- Table layout assistence would be nice.  (Although given the variety of tabular environments, I'm not sure how sensible that would be.)

Of course, what I want to hear is that I'm a fool because I haven't found these already-implemented features.  Any help?

Thanks.
