Yes, I think both setting the global default and setting it as you
wish per-mode is the right way to approach this problem.  Each major
mode is free to override the default.  Having the default set to nil,
however, probably means that you'll have to use hooks like the above
less often.  Just watch out for Makefiles which require leading TABs,
as another poster mentioned.
