Indentation setting for C-Sharp files.

I am collaborating with some C# projects being developed partly on the
iMac with MonoDevelop and on Windows with Visual Studio. The Mono
environment is technical lead, so the other tools better follow its
indentation and space/tab rules.

The 'standard' in this MonoDevelop environment is to use tabs to do the
indentation, not spaces, and the 'display width' of the tab is set to 4.

The 'display width' is less important, but I'd like to tell emacs to use
only tabs to do the indentation. I've surfed the net and found lots of
places telling me how to achieve the opposite, i.e. using only spaces.

Is there a way to force emacs to only use tabs for indentation? And such
a setting exists, could it also define the tab width to 4, but still use
tabs (so three tabs at the start of the line would be displayed as 12
whitespace columns)?



If you put it off long enough, it might go away. ... and go2 places!
