[Pkg-mc-devel] Bug#888492: mcedit: Do not enable 'fake half tabs' by default.

Package: mc
Version: 3:4.8.19-1
Severity: wishlist

'Fake half tabs' in Tabulation section of Editor options is extremeally
annoying, if not stupid.

It is better for everybody to either set 'Fill tabs with spaces' instead
or (which I prefer), no tabulation-modifying options with 'Tab spacing: 4'.

Using fake half tabs, especially by default, serves no purpose, and leads
to garbage files from newcomers, especially if 'Visible tabs' options is
not enabled.
