Yep, that's not disputable, as the Qt-style policy mandates to use spaces for 
indentation, explicitly no tabs. However, it does *not* specify whether tabs 
should be abolished. Therefore, I propose that the tab spacing is set to 8, 
because that's the standard. It wouldn't be too troublesome for weird tab 
spacing using users to look into kdelibs code because indenting would, by 
definition, not be affected.
