Actually I don't like spaces for indentation at all. A tab character and a
space character take the same number of bytes, so it takes two-to-eight times
as much space per indentation to store the same indentation as a single tab
character. On the average project that can add up to several kilobytes of
difference. Furthermore, it completely _prevents_ collaborators from enjoying a
bit of customization as to the amount of indentation. If I like my indentation
to be two spaces, and you like yours to be four, then we can each set our text
editors that way and continue to happily share code that uses tabs for indentation.
I disagree with both PEP8 and Gentoo SOC styles on the matter. I would love it
if someone could explain to me the actual benefit of using spaces over tabs.
I'll reply to the rest of the equery refactorization thread in a different email.
