Well, I can't argue with you there.  Tab size is pretty useless to me  
too.  I can think of a few ways to provide that visual feedback & not  
clutter TM.  I could see lumping tab size and line endings into the  
same widget as tab size & letting the widget remember what you would  
like it display.  I could also see giving the option to add more  
status items to the line / column indicator at the bottom left of the  
window.  For that matter, one thing I like about the OS X terminal  
app is the ability (although limited) to customize the window title  
with some useful info.  Maybe giving the user the ability to specify  
custom info into the window title would work.  I don't think I'd use  
it but I don't use but a fraction of what TM has to offer anyway.
