Slight note of aggression in you words makes me think you
are a ... spacist?
So you are the opinion it would be more productive to
invent a new language instead of just cleaning up spaces?
Interesting idea indeed, but that is ok.
I think it still helps to realize that in the future this will
become more noticable problem than it seems now, so
at least making up a strategy for converting to tabs
could be way more productive on a long term basis,
than replacing tabs and spaces back and forth, like pouring
water from one glass to another.
