I don't know, you said "tabs are very convenient when printing
data" or something?

But what are you printing with them then ... tabs?

Easy but ugly since interface metadata shouldn't clutter
source files ...

And they should do so even less when there is no gain doing so
either, right?

The TAB key on the keyboard is one of my favorite keys and
I often do iteration with that and the so-called backtab which
is S-TAB. See this for ERC which is cool if I may, don't know
if they liked it enough or what happened ...

Note that it doesn't iterate the same things! (Type of things.)
