Based on the manual section I quoted before, What is exactly my
misunderstanding? I think it says that selecting multiple lines *in a
text mode buffer* and hitting <TAB> should produce an indentation of
every line. Isn't that right?

Yes, I know that way of indenting several lines, but IMO it's too
laborious. I'd like to have a more agile way.
