Slightly offtopic, but what is the advantage of spaces over tabs?
With tabs, you can specifiy the amout of indentation yourself (some prefer
8 characters, some only 1) thus you don't have to adapt to the original
author's
indentation style.
Also, tabs make the files smaller as they're only a single character instead
of
1-8. Okay, this is a minor point, but I think tabs are much more useful than
spaces
for indentation.
