Definitely. Indenting with tabs vs. spaces is mostly personal
preference (though spaces are better!). But, mixing the two is right
out, and should be stomped on hard.

Yet another reason to switch to Python 3.

For new projects, sure. But since the v1.5 days I've deployed the
current python version a dozen times a year on various one-offs so that
I'm sure I've got every python version deployed somewhere, and they just
run, so why fix something that works. Or upgrade it when a three line
fix addresses the issue.


Surely the issue of mixing tabs and spaces is much more important than working systems? :)

My fellow Pythonistas, ask not what our language can do for you, ask what you can do for our language.
