[ANN] Aligner Plugin 0.9.0

The Aligner Plugin is a tiny plugin which moves the cursor in the current editor to the right until it is aligned with the next word of the line above. If this is not possible, it moves it as far to the right as the line above and proceeds until it is aligned with the beginning of a word two lines above the current line etc. If none of that is possible, the plugin does nothing.

The plugin action is (by default) invoked by pressing Shift+Space.

Examples ("|" denotes cursor position):

Yes, I have had this happen to me too, although not too
often (I probably don't type as fast as you:) ).
Would re-assigning the keyboard shortcut to something
like Alt-Shift-Space be an acceptable solution?

Yes maybe by default it not be Shift+]]>.
And, is it configurable action in editor keymap?

You can configure it in the "Plug-ins" node of
the keymap settings.

P.S.: JB, why is it "Plug-ins" and not "Plugins"?
