On one hand I understand your frustration,
on the other I see no reason to change defaults.
Many people who used to such settings for years might find defaults change
nothing but annoying.
It doesn't seems to be a problem if you aware of the issue and know how to
deal with it. To me mcedit behaviour is clear and predictable: when I need tab
I press <tab> twice, when I need spaces I use <space>.
Actually it is useful with preparing patches where ability to control
tabs/spaces is crucial.
Your feelings regarding how students use mcedit do not qualify for severity
I set severity to 'wishlist' and I will not fix this but also will not
overrule new default if you manage to convince upstream with your suggestion.
All the best,
