I found the tab is 8 spaces and indentation level is 4 spaces indeed
hard to work with, especially when peeking into the source code when
you have a different number of spaces for your tab.

Although it requires tremendous thinking at some times we should keep
the 80 characters limit, which means people have to work with a fixed
'tab' size anyway.

Agreed, although the thing I would hate to see is a large numbers of
diffs just as result tab preferences. I have no problem replacing the
tabs in the JTSK code by 8 real spaces and continue with the 4 spaces
indentation, it will keep the formatting the same and will result in
less confusion for there are no tabs anymore. I will have to learn
working with the home key for navigation instead of using the cursor
keys but I think I can adapt to that.
