This 8 vs 4 is getting cruftier and cruftier.  (And does it deal
properly with existing code that already has four spaces because it
was written recently?)

"Tim" regularly fixes whitespace already, with little damage.

Would it make sense to do a one-time cutover on the 2.6 trunk?
How about the bugfix branches?

If it is ever going to happen, then immediately after a release,
before unfreezing, is probably the best time.
