I have never seen anyone suggest mixing tabs and spaces, and I
have read a lot of tabs-vs-spaces flamewars in my time.

Everyone agrees that mixing is bad. I might even go so far as to
say that the only real problem is mixing. The question is, if we
are trying to pick only one, which one causes fewer problems.

For me, it is spaces.

(oh, and unix line endings ;o)
