That's a separate conversation.

Seemed relevant since what you're doing is switching things originally
coded one way to use what *you* prefer, without changing the code at
all (right?).

Dan Smith writes:
To quote from the Python style guide[1]:

 "The most popular way of indenting Python is with spaces only.
 The second-most popular way is with tabs only."

Where's the statistics to document that?
Why does that imply that coding with spaces is better in any way?

 "spaces-only are strongly recommended over tabs."

Obviously the guy who wrote that is a big dope.

> Seems to me like you're breaking Python indentation rules now?

Hmm, that is a stupid mistake on my part...

Ok, thought so ;).
