[Tim, fails to channel David]

Oh, indeed yes!  No more than two hours before, I failed Guido too, by
failing to guess one of the passwords I needed to do something he commanded
me to do.  My myth of omniscience was much easier to maintain at a distance

It occurs to me that I had Emacs set up (in my own .emacs) to never ever use
literal tab characters.  That may go a way in explaining why pymode never
generated ambiguous indentation for me!

I suppose you can also get in trouble by editing *other* peoples' code
containing a mix of tabs and spaces.  So never do that either.
