Why not enforce four space indentations in version 3.x?

I believe Guido himself has said that all indentions should be four
spaces - no tabs.

Since backward compatibility is being thrown away anyway, why not
enforce the four space rule?

At least that way, when I get python code from somebody else, I would
know what I am looking at, without having to do a hex dump, or
something.
