OK. So, I've been trying to decide (for the last time, I swear) whether 
to use tabs or spaces in my code... I did a quick pulse-check on the 
state of argument and it appears to be alive and well in 2021. My 
question for y'all is, was there a preference in the very early days or 
not? I saw an article talking about the 20 year feud, but that's not my 
recollection. In 1994, nobody agreed on this, but I'm sure it predates 
my entree into the field. I'm thinking the history of entab and detab 
are somehow related, but I've been wrong on these sorts of thoughts 
before. What say you?
