Is this style something we want to try push into the GNU Coding Standard
and/or into the GNU indent default?

I don't care much about coding styles conventions, but I care about
consistency.  Moving away from the default style of GNU indent in gnulib
seems a bit inconsistent to me.  I can't find anything about tab vs
space in the coding standard though.  Thoughts?
