Not sure it matters, because others contribute more than I do, but I
also prefer tabs for indentation and spaces for alignment.
And I really got used to the editor's default tab width of 8.

Regarding line size: I can easily live with 132. 80 is better if you
want to print longer source codes on paper for some reason.
Please avoid splitting stdout or stderr strings to reduce the line size.
It makes  grepping just too error prone.
