We also need a way to keep things in order going forward.
I.e., a syntax-check style rule that enforces this style.

To that end, please prepare a file like the one below,
to be committed along with your other changes,
or as part of a subsequent change that enforces policy.
I started based on your earlier outline.

These are extended regular expressions that match
any file that must retain TAB-based indentation.
For now, let's not worry about TABs elsewhere.
# These contain Makefile snippets.

# The regex module is the only major source code for which we still
# have bidirectional propagation between gnulib and glibc.

# This is special.

# This is a binary file.

I'll try to post details tomorrow.
