I'm not really sure why, but one apparent reason is that Python
uses the same indent. Also, 8 spaces or TABs don't "look right"
too me - obviously, that's a matter of taste and hard to argue

Just like Fredrik, I prefer 4 spaces indents over TABs and since
the RE and Unicode code base used these 4 spaces indents all along,
I'd also prefer to keep it that way.
