I'm putting in my vote for keeping tabs and not using spaces. The thing
I love about tabs is the ability to change the tabstop according to your
needs. It's a flexibility that you don't get with spaces. Then again
I do all my coding in vim. Other than that I'm all for cleaning up the
source code to the one standard. Go for it!
