My intuition says (a).  If you have tabbed from A to C to D and finally 
to B, and you "want to go back one tab stop", "D" is where you just came 
from, so "D" is where you go back to.  Two Shift-TABs in a row take you 
two tab stops back to C, and so on.

Is this issue that Shift-TAB takes you back one step vs. that it 
completely rewinds to the beginning?
