No, it's a suggestion to make another utility "weapon" which would, when used, enable the player to change the character, just like with tab (useful if <allow_character_selection> is not default).

Example: You start a turn with a char that you has nothing deadly to do and switching is off, so you use this utility to change to another char and wreak havoc.
Example2: You start with a char and only move him to a safe location. Since that doesn't end the turn, you can use the utility to change to another char and do some damage aswell (or hide again).

Really, I don't understand. Is it a suggestion to make switching via tab something that can be turned off?

BTW, absynthesyringe is no longer active in the project.

There's no weapon currently, but it's allready configurable in data/game_mode/classic.xml:

<!-- either 'always','never','before_first_action','change_on_end_turn','before_first_action_and_end_turn'-->

I suppose it is interesting to add this option in game_menu :-)

Right now, when you press "tab" key on your keyboard, before moving your character you can select which player/character you want.

This isnt right, this same should be set as a weapon (yes does sound too much worm-ish), cuz right now it's really not too realistic, or fair.
