history shows pretty evidently that you can't reach consensus on style, 
unless your compiler is style dependant (which is why Python code all 
looks the same!).

tab is bad. everytime you see tabs you should change them into 4 
whitespaces. this is the general practice for java code in the ASF.

this is the *ONLY* wide practice.
