No, looks good.

Yeah, indent-rigidly is close only this

    (indent-rigidly (region-beginning) (region-end) 4)

seems to sometimes insert tabs (one tab and one space
in text-mode, but four spaces in message-mode what I
can see). If you can have it not do that (insert tabs,
ever) I'm happy. (I have tabs removed on save but I
still don't like to insert them for the same reason I
have them removed.)

Question is (which I didn't mention in my OP), should
the region be refilled after it gets the new margin,
and, if so, what should the fill-column be?

Yeah, you mean `C-u 4 C-x TAB'? (`C-x TAB' is
