That would require some sort of delay between keypresses I suppose.  Still
non-intuitive though.  This is a difficult thing to figure out because
your trying to combine commandline behavior with gui behavior.  The
mentality is that in a gui, tab will move to the next element.  My guess
is that you would not have tab work once you in a text widget, I know some
apps that behave that way.  Another way could be to navigate using the
arrow keys and not depend on tabs, lousy for programmers but might be
useful for regular people.  Lastly, I hope you guys plan on letting use VI
keys for navigation.  Tab would work very intuitively with that system.
