Yet another rather pointless bikeshed: if this becomes policy, maybe it
should get a PEP number < 100, like PEP 5 or 6.


Thus spake the Lord: Thou shalt indent with four spaces. No more, no less.
Four shall be the number of spaces thou shalt indent, and the number of thy
indenting shall be four. Eight shalt thou not indent, nor either indent thou
two, excepting that thou then proceed to four. Tabs are right out.
