Thanks, Neil. My editor does confusing things with tabs.
I hate them. Who would object if I just started running
tabs->spaces on the source docs? I think we should have
a strict no-tabs rule. And I'm in good company:

If the programmers, particularly Han-Wen (who appears to already
agree with this) decide to make it a standard, fine.  This should
also be mentioned in the CG, just like all the doc policy items.
If it _is_ mentioned in the CG, please put a mention about editing .make files; tabs _are_ significant here and required when you are defining rules.
