Since these allow_tab_character patches are basically just API 
feature addition (they don't change existing behavior unless you
set set them to non-default values), my question here would be:

 Are they compellingly useful?

Will people ever want to set "allow_tabs" to TRUE for GtkEntry widgets
or allow_tabs to FALSE for GtkText widgets?
