I know what UNIX tabs do.  I also know that many Windows editors, and
some cross-platform editors like Eclipse, default to 4-space tabs.  But
let's not have a tab width flame war.  Even if we all agree on 8-space
tabs, I'd want my alignment characters to be semantically correct.

So I ask again: is there a way to get this?
        block {
        ------->block {
Or even this, if the indent and tab widths are different?
        block {
        ....block {
        ------->block {
