Right -- so that's also a way to handle the situation, you can do similar
mapping of these paragraph tabs to normal tabs in dmapper, and then you
won't have to deal with paragraph tabs anywhere else in LO.
Given that such a mapping probably loses information, you need to choose
between correctness and ease of implementation. :-)
