Damn! I meant to run untabify before posting (I knew you'd bitch about hard
tabs ;-) but then I went and forgot. I just added an untab hook to my Emacs
mail-send-hooks, so this shouldn't happen in the future.

I've not been holding anything back. Like I said, I don't know what made me
take the 10 minutes right then to whip up a couple trivial benchmarks.
(Bored, I guess.) I'll try playing around to see what I can dig up.
