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.

Sure - just include a .emacs snippet in the appropriate docs, so I
know how to configure my editor, if I ever get to hacking lily again.

*Indentation can insert tabs if this is non-nil.
