Ah. The tab key doesn't work like that. The tab key means "for the
current line (or the currently selected region if there is one),
adjust the spacing at the beginning of the line so that it is lined up
properly for Racket code", roughly speaking.

Do you want a literal tab character in your file for some reason?
