The EditorConfig system is a growing consensus for configuring a code
base to instruct text editors not to mangle it. See the EditorConfig
site <URL:http://editorconfig.org/> for more information.
Sadly, it seems Kate does not yet recognise EditorConfig instructions
<URL:https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=330843>. In the meantime,
manually configure Kate to only ever insert spaces to indent lines.

Yes. That is a deliberate compromise to make it easy to write code
interactively at the interactive prompt.

Since you are writing code into a module file, why not just run the
module from that file with the non-interactive Python interpreter?
