That's a maintenance nightmare.

Maybe I'm not a perfect coder, but during the course of editing code,
I break lines in the middle and re-indent them, combine lines, and all
other manner of combination. It would be a major PITA to have to go
and recheck every line to make sure it had the proper combination of
leading tabs and spaces. Maybe you just type all your code correctly
the first time. ;)
