I don't know of any application that doesn't work right with tabs set to the
size of eight spaces. IMHO it's changing the size, that is causing the
trouble. We have a few vi users here, that change the tab size (that is
probably their means of some kind of indentation) and this is causing problems
in some other editors (not in emacs I know, just one command and it looks ok).
