You might not have to throw it away, you might just have to configure it
properly. E.g. in emacs you will not only have to set the indent-level but
the tab-width also. If the tab-width is not equal to, or at least a --
f*** how do you call a "Ganzzahliges Vielfaches" in english -- of the
indent-level, it will mix tabs and spaces, else it won't.
