I moved the reindent version of paste to Ctrl+Shift+V and called it
"Paste Special" because I do not want to reindent comments or just
regular text when I use TA to edit something that is not code.

I do not mind removing it because I tend to forget about Ctrl+Shift+V
and indent the pasted code using the TAB key.
