Whatever policy chosen, it will cause problems if developers do not
follow it, yes. I do not see how that can be an argument for either the
"tabs" or "spaces" policy...

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
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
spaces were used, and sometimes tabs.

Again, it resulted in messed up source files.
