I don't like the wiggling part...

Note that I had found all the resources people have pointed me to so 
far, but I still didn't think the indentation issue was clear.

I want a simple list, preferably the one mentioned in the mail thread 
[1], that I can point contributers to;

  1) 4 space indentation
  2) No tabs
  3) 80 character lines

We can mention the code convention document, but personally I don't want 
it as an entry on the "hard-and-fast" rules list.
