What has happened in the past was something like this:
* Developer A of library has tabs set for 4.
* Developer B commits trivial fix. Developer B's editor had tabs set at 2,
but converted tabs on the changed line only to spaces.
It resulted in messed up source files.
We even had several files only touched by a single developer, but sometimes
spaces were used, and sometimes tabs.
Again, it resulted in messed up source files.
