Yay! :D
* The minimum width and padding width values can now be configured using gconf

It should be pretty trivial to add the code to anything that uses
GtkSourceView, and probably GtkTextView too.

Have a look at for more

Good work, Nick!

I am noticing that after so much messing with it, it becomes pretty slow to type and delete characters. Deleting any lines using tabs seems to fix this. It seems as if you might be calculating layout unnecessarily.

Also it doesn't seem to work when you have "insert spaces instead of tabs" enabled in GEdit's preferences, nor does it respect the "tab width" setting for line indentation. I'm not really sure how you could possibly work around these integration problems, but I thought I would bring them up anyway.
