Summary \DTLunsettabseparator

Description

\DTLsettabseparator changes the catcode of <tab> to 12. This may cause problems when tabs appear in the source (e.g., makeindex authomatically generates such tab-laden source material). To avoid the user having to explicitly reset the catcode to 10 (an require knowledge of catcodes), it may be useful to have a \DTLunsettabseparator command that does that for him.

Evaluation

I decided to call the new command \DTLmaketabspace rather than DTLunsettabseparator. It's more in line with \makeatletter. Also I was concerned that users might think that \DTLunsettabseparator will reset the separator to some previous value rather than simply changing the category code. Anyway, it's added to version 2.23.
