In trying to another problem, I came across bug  0000865 ("Allow changing tab 
order of PDF form fields"). Maybe it's just me, but I can change them, at 
least within a page (haven't tried it with multiple pages) without recreating 
them. I'm using 1.2.2cvs Jan 29, 2005, but was doing this with an earlier 
version too.

Apparently, if you just change the level of the field (Properties -> X,Y,Z; at 
the bottom), it changes the tab order. Make the first field level 0, then the 
next one you want to tab to level 1 and so on. Tested it with Reader 5 on 
Linux and Reader 7 on Win2000. Can anyone confirm this? Also, can anyone 
explain what level is supposed to do (other than changing tab order 

Fail to learn history-repeat it.
Fail to learn rights-lose them.
Learn both-get screwed by previous two groups.
