Tabs are the most terrible option, proven many times to simply not work.

Btw. I never said I insist on 2-space indentation, only that I would
prefer it. If everyone would tell his preferences in a calm way, we
could try finding a compromise. I don't see a reason why we should use
the kdelibs coding style, we should simply orient on what we already
have and like, and make it consistent.
