Yes you can, just don't mix tabs and spaces.  The added advantage here
is that say I want my tab width to be 8, spaces but you want yours to be
4.  If we are using tabs, you can do that.  But spaces force all of us
to have the same indentation width.

The other disadvantage of using spaces is that, say I'm working on code
that uses spaces.  I've just written a new indented block of code.  Now,
I have to remember how many times to hit backspace to go back an
indentation level, but with tabs, I just hit one backspace per level I
want to go back.
