You could always convert back to emacs style before committing with a 
relatively simple script. That would avoid the meaningless diffs, but 
adds a small amount of extra work for you. I'd wrap your checkout and 
commit commands with a script to expand to spaces on checkout or 
update, and contract to emacs tab+spaces before commit. After a commit, 
you do an update and everything goes back to "normal" in your working
