Repeat after me:
Tabs are good. Tabs tell you an indent is requested but do not
force the displayed indent level on the editor.
I do not mix tabs and spaces, and if your editor starts doing that
I suggesting switching to a proper editor. If you do start mixing
them you can trivialy make those changes visible by changing the
syntax highlightning. If you use vim do this:
syn match leadingSpace "^\s\+\<" contained badTabs
syn match badTabs "\t"
hi def link badTabs Error
which will make spaces in leading whitespace light up as errors.
(untested, but should work)
