[Scribus] Survey: using tabs when alignment is other than 'left'

Hi folks!

I've a question for the users: how should tabs work in justified,  
right-aligned or centered paragraphs?

a) do you have any use cases for that?
b) what is more important:
     - outer shape of the paragraph
     - exact control which tabstop is used
c) consider right-aligned text with a left tab: should there be some  
minimum space where the tab is?
d) consider typing a right-aligned paragraph: which tabstop should  
the first TAB key use, the leftmost one or some other?

Currently my ideas go to supporting tabs in justified text by  
restricting justification to the part after the last tab stop (does  
anyone want justification between tabs?).
When using tabs in right-aligned text I'd choose in the same order as  
I would in left-aligned text, just flushing the text before ther  
first tab right and justifying the text after the last tabstop.
I dont plan to support tabs in centered text.

Any ideas?
