No no no no, and a thousand times no.

using spaces is evil.

if you use tabs, everyone can choose their desired tabstop (remember, 
not everyone uses 80 char terminals), and some people even prefer to 
read wrapped lines rather than lower their tabstop.

-10 here, because at least with tabs, the VIEWER gets the choice.
