I think that's tricky to do atm - how about just saying to the users
that they shouldn't use tabs 2 spaces for f# ?
Monodevelop can be extended to support such things, but atm I think it's
not possible to do it cleanly.
(you can write an own text editor extension and handle the \t key
yourself without using the insert tab action ... but I don't think
that's a good way doing that)
