Tab order of inputFields within a pageBlockSection

Is there any way to control the tab order of apex:inputField controls within a pageBlockSection? Right now, tabbing thru a 2-column pageBlockSection moves focus across each row, from left to right, then down to the next row. I would like the tab movement to be down the left column, then down the right column (like standard Salesforce input forms). The apex:inputField control does not support the tabindex attribute. This results in a tab order that is not consistent with a standard Salesforce data input forms.
Please vote for this idea if you'd like to see it implemented.
Thanks. I promoted your idea. It seems like it could be done without having to implement an entirely new control. If they just added support for the "tabindex" attribute on the inputField control, and pass it thru to the underlying HTML input element that gets rendered (typically an "input", "select" or "textarea"), that would do the trick.

Has this been enabled? What is the latest update?
