I personally don't care to see it, I'd rather it just did the soft ->
hard conversion for me so I don't have to worry about it. Thats
assuming hard tabs is defined as actual spaces rather then a tab
character. If I'm getting those mixed up, switch 'em around or
whatever. I find true tabs to be very annoying since different
editors/programs seem to translate them differently, just give me
spaces :P. Their are plenty of freeware and proprietary programs that
do both and everything in between, don't feel like you have to be
pushed into buying something.
