Hi Mark,

May I ask what editor you are using?  Most probably others can
help you configure it better, or help you to use it in a way that
it handles TABS better.  TAB is a bit special but fairly frequently
used character, and it would help you if you were able to edit
sources that contain TABs?  Most probably, LilyPond won't be the
only project that you'll ever work on?

Oh, and as an aside: that does not help.  In fact, that may be
the cause of your troubles.  Things you resist will haunt you 
until you let go :-)

I'm asking because this would be a workaround for your problem
with your editor, or with how you use it but it does not really
fix it?  The tab problem would "go away" for you, when working
on LilyPond, you'll encounter the very same problem with any project
that uses TABs in source code (that's any GNU project, the linux kernel,

Also, I think that for most people that work on LilyPond, this change
would make working on different projects harder (unless maybe they
work exclusively for Google ;-)
