Hi Deniz,

Thanks for being so helpful ;)

Well, my config has snippets attached to TAB too, so if I hit TAB, it
will try to complete "end". I'm using a fork of emacs-starter-kit,
and, although I have modified it a lot already, I didn't have the time
to peek into it the way I wanted so as to understand how things are
wired up, I'll need to to that eventually.

Anyway, thanks for the suggestion. Using C-j already had this
behaviour built-in btw,

Marcelo.
