Ok, now I can see tabs in a message buffer.  But now I have a new
problem... I can't turn it off...
You'd think toggling the mode with M-x global-whitespace-mode would
turn it off but it doesn't.

I did notice the capitalized WS in the mode line went to lowercase
when I toggled global-whitespace-mode... so maybe you can toggle
local-whitespace-mode but no... no soap there.

Going back to the documentation Tim posted... I finally guessed how to
turn it on off.... it doesn't tell you directly but it does tell what
to do if local whitespace-mode is off.  

So you can guess that there is a whitespace-mode you can toggle.  Not
just a `global-whitespace-mode'.

Thanks for sticking with it Tim... in spite of my thick skull.
