This is a common emacs feature, that I also liked.. ish.. can be hard  
to get used to IMO ;-). TextMate can't do it as such, but it does  
have auto-indent of course, trying to indent in a sensible way when  
you press return. I suppose one could write a command to do indenting  
on pressing TAB, although for large documents I don't know how fast  
it would be. TextMate commands can do a lot, though.
