Doh! What was the error message? It worked for me....

It was my understanding that to make a multiple-key binding, you need
to make a keymap first (line 2), bind that to the first key of the
sequence (line 3 - in this case - tab), and then add the other keys of
the binding (line 4). So, to add your other stuff, you'd do more
modified copies of line 4.

Hmm. I don't really know where the C-i <--> TAB stuff happens, sorry.
