As you might imagine, not all of us are vim gurus.  What do the above
settings do?

In Emacs, there are two issues: first, how are tab characters
displayed?  And secondly, how many columns are indented?  In Emacs,
programming languages normally provide syntax-driven indentation.
Each programming language mode has its own way to customize the
indentation.
