It's Fernando.  Fernandez is a patronimic last name, like Stenarson :)

OK, thanks for the tip.  I'll test this and commit if it all works OK.



ps - you'd asked about emacs and tabs.  This is what I have in my .emacs file:

;; Use spaces instead of tabs for indentation
(defun indent-spaces-common-hook ()
   (setq indent-tabs-mode 'nil))

and then make sure you run this hook for python files.
