Generally it's both.  I've noticed some files use mainly spaces,
presumably because the original author did, but over time things to fuzz
out as people with different settings edit the code.  Mostly it doesn't
really matter I think....


In New York, most people don't have cars, so if you want to kill a person, you
have to take the subway to their house.  And sometimes on the way, the train
is delayed and you get impatient, so you have to kill someone on the subway.
