Because to follow your system, everybody that uses GNU indentation style
would have to use TAB == 2 spaces, which means that the contents of
indented blocks would be indented by two tabs per block level.

If you attempted to view such code using an application which uses the
standard tab size of 8 -- e.g., more or less in a terminal -- blocks
would end up being indented by _16 spaces per block level_, which is
(pardon my french) pretty fucking absurd.

Would you like fries with that?
