Hi Nate,

Ohh, I've read that (I've been using Linux for a long time enough to have
gone through the kernel sources more than once :), but just because they put
their preference as some kind of religion doesn't make it right (or the only
one, at that).

Actually, while I think that 8 space tabs work mostly OK with plain C code,
it's a completely different thing when you go to an OO language where
namespaces and classes introduce extra scopes (and thus indentation levels).
