Pretty much every single new portfile submission I look at appears to  
have been made with hard tabs set at 8 width. However, I (and many  
others) use 4-width tabs, so these portfiles look very ugly in our  

I would ask that all new Portfile submissions be done with 4-space  
soft tabs instead. Using spaces means all editors will present the  
Portfile the same way. Every single modern editor (including emacs  
and vim) has the capability of doing 4-space soft tabs, so please use
