Well, this is the default for spaces, but you can set blank-chars variable to:
'tabs-and-spaces TABs and SPACEs are visualized.
'tabs only TABs are visualized.
'spaces only SPACEs are visualized.
The default is 'tabs-and-spaces, but could be changed to 'tabs.

What do you suggest for default values?
blank-mode is customized by the following options:
`blank-space-face' Face used to visualize SPACE.
`blank-tab-face' Face used to visualize TAB.
`blank-verbose' Non-nil means generate messages.
`blank-chars' Specify which kind of blank is visualized.
`blank-space-regexp' Specify space characters regexp.
`blank-tab-regexp' Specify tab characters regexp.
`blank-priority' Specify blank overlay priority.
If "end-of-line marker" means "highlight spaces at end-of-line", set:
(setq blank-space-regexp " +$")
(setq blank-tab-regexp "\t+$")

I used blank-mode because whitespace-mode was already being used. I think
that visws was used for the same reason.
Anyway, the name can be changed, that's not a big problem.
