In vim you can move things by a 'shiftwidth' using the > command.
I typically have my shiftwidth set to be 4, to match my tabs, but you
could define it to be 1 and use it as you describe.

So in vim I would do a block select (Ctrl-V), select what I want, then

No idea if this translates to your editor though, I've never used it. 
Old vi doesn't have the visual block select features, it does have
non-block select variants of the > command though (so saith the manual).

Related commands are < for left, >>, :> and various ranges/counts can be
thrown in for those more advanced than I, I simply do the commands twice :).
