Well, to me the smart SOAP STC feels like a smart text editor
so there's no "fields" to cycle through. This concept lends
itself much better to Syan's implementation of multiple
textctrls (and it worked there, too). However, jumping would
still be nice so I suggested the Ctrl-Tab thingy.

IMHO that doesn't sit well with the feeling of a text editor
that I get from the SOAP widget. Button shortcuts (ALT-O,
ALT-S) might do better here.
