RTE: Normalize Indent and Outdent operations in Editor

The indent and outdent code of the browser do not work very well. They're inconsistent about using blockquote versus div with padding ... and all browsers (IE, FF, WebKit?), indent/outdent lists wrong, they generate malformed lists.

So, like the EnterKeyHandling? plugin, it would be nice to have a way to handle indent/outdent consistently across browsers following a style indent pattern (much like other RTE do).

I have a prototype implementation that does this (and seems to work really well). It even fixes malformed lists from previous indent/outdent ops on a doc. It does not convert blockquote indent/outdent, though (not sure how to do that safely yet. Maybe as a prefilter operation to convert all blockquote tags to an indentable div).

Prototype of indent/outdent handler.

The prototype does the following:

1.) Uses customUndo on all browsers, as it has to manipulate the DOM directly.
2.) Fixes malformed lists (if they were created/indented wrong in the first place).

3.) Handles cross-selection indenting (indents elements that are indentable, will wrap inline elements within an indentable div as necessary.

Tests indicate that it seems to work really well. Feedback would be appreciated.
