Hi Ross:

Intended?  No, I don't think so, but sadly de facto.  I
spent some time trying to debug it years ago, but it's not much fun.
In 13.05, we shut it off by default:
ESS[SAS]: ess-sas-edit-keys-toggle now defaults to t since 
sas-indent-line is still broken, i.e. TAB is now bound to 
ess-sas-tab-to-tab-stop by default
