Yes, I had to change it fro another project.

The only place I know where the type of whitespace makes a difference is in a 
Makefile (dumb design, but we're stuck with that.)

The xml builds fine with tabs or spaces.

On the other hand, I agree that a project should be consistent.  If others are 
expecting spaces or have tabs set for different indentation, it can be a pain. 
It will also show up when browsing code via Trac.

I'll fix the pages I changed.
