Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Things to make OACS 4 development easier

FWIW, I've worked for several sofware companies and all the ones that had coding standards required a specific number of spaces instead of tabs.

The main reason is because code reviews are still conducted around a conference room table with printouts, and this ensures that everyone is seeing the code in the way that they are used to.  If everyone sets their own spacing it can be incredibly distracting to look at it with someone else's spacing.
