GNU? makes some wonderful, and powerful code. Thank you for your efforts.

Dropping into code, that is effectively of required use, e.g?  
"stl_iterator.h"  that is complicated enough on its own,  while trying to fix
some crazily complicated template problem in code one is writing,  and then  
discovering that??   Due to the configurations of tabs on an editor, the code
you're looking at is, well, unintelligibly unreadable. 

This is? a bit maddeningly frustrating -- and wonderfully excerbatingly so when
debugging, and then finding yourself debug stepping across code, from different
sources that you can't control, while encountering all sorts of different 'tab
stop' defaults, 3 spaces, 4 spaces, 8 spaces, style, etc, etc)

PLEASE PLEASE!! Can GNU strip the tabs (tabs--> spaces), before releasing, on
such key important files?    

Asking around before sending this, many others share my frustration on this
