This looks useful.  I have had something similar but much more
primitive for awhile in Sepia, a Perl editing package I maintain.
Specifically, tab tries to indent, but if no indentation occurs,
it will try to expand an abbrev or function name before point.  I
think I prefer your "second tab" version, though.

In briefly trying it out, I think there's too much visual
feedback by default.  In particular, changing the mode line
causes a distracting flicker away from where you are editing, and
seems redundant when you already show a mark on the active line.
