Ivan gets to decide this, but I've had issues with tab-based formatting and display inconsistencies.  diff files, for example, tend to be hard to read.  I'd lean towards just avoiding tabs, even if it makes the uncompressed source files larger.  But I don't have a strong opinion on the issue, and I was unfortunately never very consistent about this.
