No program that I work with (and I use cli all the time) outputs a tab when I press the tab key.  Now, true, I think I had to configure vi so that that was the case, but nothing else that I remember.  Of course, most of those programs use readline and come with some sort of configuration such as what we are (belatedly) supply in python's command line.  So, to me, outputting an actual tab character would be *less* consistent with my general (modern) computing experience.  Especially since we are, in fact, talking about python now doing "autocomplete all the time" :)
