I don't really like the 2 whitespace either, but I wouldn't like to create
a flame about that. If we really want to let people to economize their
screen space, I'd say use tabs. That way you can configure the editor
however you want, however there's people who really hate those.

If we want to standarize, I'd say we should adhere to the kdelibs coding
style, I don't really like it either, but some compromise will be always

I don't really think it's that much of a problem either.
