Because, if one uses spaces, one can alway simply indent to the level
of the original programmer, but if one mixes spaces and tabs, it all falls
to hell in a handbasket. I know, you say "emacs," but emacs requires that
everyone else be using emacs, too (emacs quite happily sunders prior
tab levels, enforcing it's own draconian standard), and that's even worse
than the tab war, believe me.

Of course, one of my first rules is "don't reindent my program, or I will
kill you".
