Yes, I think this is pretty essential. In word processors, this is
often shown on the ruler by having a a white background between the
physical margins and a grey background everywhere else. If we were to
do that we would have to have a method for tools to render something
on the ruler *before* the main ruler is drawn but after the solid
ruler background has been drawn (the latter may be drawn by the
toolkit anyway?).

It would also be good to have some way of moving the right hand margin
to coincide with the physical margin, maybe using a double click on
the blob?

Perhaps the tab stops and left/right/first-line story margins should
snap to eachother, and to the left/right physical margins. Snapping
is going to be pretty essential anyway as there is nothing more annoying
than not being able to easily set the first line margin to an
indented story margin.

Is there going to be some way to enter these numerically? Or say
"I want tabs every inch"?
