I'm not jumping to anything. Rather, I'm sharing my observations. I've been in the field for 20 years, and I stand by my point, which is that spaces will always find their way into a project. Projects that use tabs inevitably end up containing spaces too; not because of an intended specialized use case, but because of human nature.

Human nature being that people who prefer spaces will end up inserting them where they don't belong, and then have the gall to blame tabs for being confusing because they messed up the indentation :/
