I like using TAB for indentation too, but when I see people setting TAB
to a different size than 8 it makes me want to swear.  There is a TAB
size and an 'indentation level' size.  These should be kept separate,
and any modern editor will do it just fine!

It is a bit amusing that nobody has answered the original question so
