We could introduce another indent-tabs-mode setting that would tell
Emacs, for each line to be indented, to use tabs if that line is already
indented with tabs, to use spaces if the line is already indented with
spaces when a tab could have been used, and to use spaces (or tabs)
otherwise --- but considering how touchy and particular people have
seemed to be about this issue, I wouldn't expect much support for
anything but the inconsistent status quo.
