If you absolutely have to, then sure, put a directive in some
machine-readable way at the top or bottom of the file. It's like the
coding cookie that Python follows - some editors also respect it. But
I would prefer to just use tabs *without* suggesting a width, because
each one represents *one indent*. Not a number of spaces. One
indentation level.
