> As a side discussion to DERBY-436 a drda cleanup issue, we discussed changing the drda
package from using tab indentation to spaces.  svn diff, svn merge,  and svn annotate now
provide a -x -b  option to ignore whitespace. This should mitigate any back-porting issues.
 
> The tab/space issue is an ongoing irritation, especially for new developers and developers
working in the network code, toggling between all spaces in the client to the tab indentation
in the drda package.
> Knut said:
> (I'd probably be in favour of making this change even if the problems with merging and
annotation weren't solved, though. Backporting may be a little painful in the beginning, but
the old branches will become less relevant and backporting to them will happen less frequently
as time passes. The sooner we do it, the sooner the pain will go away. 
> Perhaps if DRDA goes well, we should do the whole trunk.
