Me too. That would make files with long source code lines a lot more  
readable. Xcode had optional hanging indents for wrapped lines, which  
was nice. To surpass Xcode's implementation, TM could take note of  
the current indentation level and indent one stop past it. (Seems  
obvious, but Xcode doesn't do it...).

(I seem to recall that someone requested this feature previously.)
