While I appreciate the irony, this actually a stricter version of the
standard, in that all of our (tab-less) code remains GNU standards
compliant.   There are various areas where we have our own stricter
standard, as compared to GNU, and I think we generally had a tendency
to have ever stricter coding guidelines.  For example, we have
underscores on class data members.

I don't see why we should not allow ourselves to be stricter wrt to
tabs as well.
