Tabs vs Spaces

Should you use tabs or spaces to indent your code? Well, if you’re writing new code on a new project, then obviously you get to pick. However, if you’re adding to some existing code the answer is: whatever was already there. Since inspecting whitespace and toggling your text editor’s settings is tedious at best I created an Emacs minor mode to do it for you. The purpose of the mode is summed up best by the README:

If you jump into a file that uses tabs for indentation, you shall continue using tabs for indentation. If you jump into a file that uses spaces for indentation, you shall continue using spaces for indentation. That's the idea.
