I don't think out positions are all that different -- it may well be 
sensible for the preferences to be organised in this way.

I'm simply arguing that if I generally prefer 3-space tabs, but open a 
document and use the menus to set 8-space tabs, I don't want the 
program to assume that I've changed my preference for all documents 
thereafter.  Whether my preference is expressed truly globally, or on 
the basis of per-language definitions is really another issue.
