     So let's say that you are using 4 spaces as your standard, but  
by accident type 5. You hit backspace, which deletes 4 spaces, and  
you now have to mentally compute the difference in order to keep  
things aligned.

     See, I can make up bizarre scenarios where spaces cause  
problems, too.
