I like python-mode, but python layout is much simpler. Also, the behavior of the 
python-mode tab key is more predictable: it goes first to the rightmost stop 
that makes sense, then repeated clicks of the tab key move the cursor to the 
left one tab stop at a time.

Again, I don't want to be too critical of haskell-mode because it is great to 
have it at all. I would prefer simpler behavior of the tab key, that's all. 
Maybe I can write it.
