Please don't. TABs are 8 spaces apart. Always have been, always will be.
People playing silly tricks with tab-width is the main reason why using TABs
in languages like Python is a bad idea.
PS: Also remember that the Python interpreter can't read your .emacs to
figure out the width of a TAB you intended. Haskell defines TABs as
being 8 spaces apart and I expect Python to do the same.
