All leading tabs or all leading spaces - why isn't that enforced?

   One can argue over tab vs. space indentation, but mixing the two
is just wrong.  Why not have CPython report an error if a file has
both leading tabs and leading spaces?  I know that was proposed at
some point, but I don't think it ever went in. That would catch a
common error introduced during maintenance.
