Actually, it should just hook into TAB (doh).

The attached version seems to replicate the old behavior more or less.  I
had to add a new custom variable to store keywords.

Also, Eric, it seems that org-structure-template-alist only supports a
single letter for short-hands (the car of an entry in
org-structure-template-alist is a char).  I used to have blocks like "<ab"
expanding to an "abstract" special-block, which I guess isn’t possible

Should I add this file to Org?
