Many projects have differnet coding style requirements, some use tabs other prefer spaces.
And there is this holy war of tabs or spaces.

I first discovered this function in Geany editor: detecting-indent-type
I thought it's cool because you don't have to worry about having the correct settings in your editor nor care about editorconfig, it just works!
