Follow-up Comment #2, bug #14615 (project findutils):

> findutils is consistent in that \t is always treated as 8 columns
> If your editor cannot properly be configured to treat tab characters as
eight columns, then I would argue it is a bug in your editor

Agreed.  The standards only say that horizontal tab moves the print head to
the next tab stop.  But the defacto standard is that this is on the next
mod-8 column.  All of emacs, vi, mozilla, indent, etc. all expect tabs to
align with mod-8 by default.
