To me it doesn't. I use a single tab character for a single indent
levell. That is unambiguous, and also ensures the file is indented as
the reader likes it. People who have their tab size set to 'n' will
see n-space sized indents,

No matter what setting, the order of the indents is kept. This is not
the case if tabs and spaces are intermixed, as some style guides
suggest.
