Define reasonable tab with.
I guess you mean 8, but, whether you like it or not, there is no
"standardized tab width".
Conversely, there are huge user groups, who "standardized" to other tab
* Some BSDs systematically use a tab width of 4 everywhere.
* Some vi users typically user a tab width of 3 (I am not using vi, so
no idea where this originates from).
* Many users apply a tab width of 2.
* There are editors, which seem to guess on "best tab expansions".
These projects have standardized their tab widths. Why shouldn't Fedora?
