Setting indent-line-function and indent-region-function doesn't seem
to do a damn thing, but (local-set-key "\t" 'self-insert-command)
works for #1 when it's called after you've switched to the major mode
you're using.

Also, if you configure tab-always-indent to nil Tab will only indent
if the cursor is at the start of the line.  You can always insert a
literal tab with C-q Tab.

Dunno what to do about #2.  The help docs lead me to believe setting
indent-line-function and indent-region-function is the answer, but
like I said those don't seem to do anything.
