I think everything worth saying about this has been said, and we need to 
make a decision one way or another and stick with it. I prefer spaces, 
but feel far more strongly in favor of a common convention. I suggest we 
vote between two options, unless someone wants to strongly push 
something else:

Option 1: An indentation step is four spaces.
Option 2: An indentation step is a single tab.

I'm +0.5 for option 1.

It's only 0.5 because I'm more concerned about reaching consensus than 
the actual choice, and I do have access to project-specific settings in 
my preferred IDE.
