I think calling that "emacs sytle" or relating this issue to emacs as
in other messages is not fair.
That's the configuration those folks happen to have. Of course emacs
can be configured to use soft tabs, and of course ANY editor that
allows hard tabs will have to mix tabs and spaces to line up certain
things. The mixture is the price you pay for using hard tabs in ANY
So the real problem is that the OP is not following the convention of
the team regarding soft/hard tabs. Not that the convention is wrong.
