That's my point - I think if we (ideally) don't have tabs in the code
then tabstop should not be necessary. And if for some reason we have
some, then it's way easier to spot those if ts is not set to a lower
value IMHO.

It's a minor thing, but if we are going to have it in the footer of
every source file, then I would say it's important. :)
