Sorry, this does not work. People _will_ use spaces, and so having the tab
at anything other than 8 is simply silly. The tab (\t) _is_ 8 spaces. Period.
If we are to have anything decent, we should decide (at least as a 
recommendation) on an indentation size. From looking at the code, 4 seems
to be the norm. Let's pick that.
