That is not a valid argument. You should always use only space, or have spaces expanded to tabs, because a space is always a space. A tab might be 4 spaces or 3 spaces or 2 spaces or default to 8 spaces (or columns every 2,3,4,8,etc columns) depending on the settings of the editor. If there are multiple people working on the same set of files with different settings for tabs, it rapidly becomes an incomprehensible mess.
