This is important to remember, especially on an issue like this - do not
let it turn into a flame fest, and once Nathan, as the bootscripts
maintainer, makes his decision on this, to let the matter drop.
For me, I'm in favor of remaining as tabs: 1) as said previously, it
allows someone to decide for themselves how things should look, and 2)
the fact that a tab character in a text file is only one byte, while
spaces are multiple bytes.
