Hi Witold,

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,
