Ctl-F7 to enable. There's also a checkbox in the system preferences.

But it doesn't work well with the current dialog. A `(send c
allow-tab-exit #t)' on the canvas for the "#lang" discussion helps a
little, so that it doesn't turn into a black hole for the Tab key. But
you really need an `accept-tab-focus' on `editor-canvas%' (not
currently provided) and more to make it work well.
