Not sure if it can be counted as an overwhelming need, just actually
defining the variable-wide character to be use "properly". Saw the way
through CodeStyle as the correct way to get the "replace 8-space
alignment to tab" nulled (then fix/change checkpatch.pl).

Actually, I see this as an quite simple question: is tab _the
indention-marker_? If not, then why the refusal of spaces indents (or mix)?
