When spaces identation is selected (instead of tabs) a
tab is inserted when a line is idented.

I want to request a change in that behaviour, in order
to have insertion of spaces when a line is idented.

The best example for the optimal behaviour is Gedit
with the "Smart spaces" plugin. It "emulates" a tab
from a set of a number of contiguos spaces (depending
of the number of spaces selected). In that way, it
looks like a tab is inserted but it IS a set of spaces.

    Perhaps this will come, should not be a big deal. For the
    meantime, just check the "Replace tabs by space" option and
    then all tabs will be converted to spaces when saving the file.
