Lest there be lingering confusion, I don't believe anyone has proposed
using hard tabs of other than 8 spaces. Travis was pointing out that
there was inconsistent indentation in one source file, and I assume he
was just trying to find an interpretation of the tabs that would make
the indentation right.

So this is all preaching to the converted. I'm entertained by the
lengths emacs users have to go to for this stuff though. VIM's
':se sw=4 et' is no less cryptic (the expanded forms, "shiftwidth" and
"expandtabs", aren't too bad at least), but a lot easier to type when
needed. ;-)
