No.  Currently the indentation step is four, the tab size is eight.
So the indentation uses a mixture of tabs plus four spaces.  But
don't bother with that, I'll adjust it when I apply the patch.

(Oh, when you make a patch, please do it in the parent dir of
src, not in src itself.)

The choice of M-1 as the shortcut for the whitespace conversion
is not very fortunate when using a Gnome terminal and having
multiple tabs open: it goes to the first tab.  Maybe this function
shouldn't have a default binding at all?  Maybe list it only among
the bindable functions in nanorc.5?

At the moment nano can undo any operations that the user
performs; it can even undo the last justification.  But with
the current patch, it cannot undo a whitespace conversion.
I think it should.
