In the wiki page for the configuration file it states:

You cannot use spaces in configuration files. This will either lead to parsing errors, or Jekyll will use the default settings.

This does not seem true. I used tabs in my _config.yml

pygments: true

sitemap:
[tab]url: "www.example.com"

and got a parsing error. Replacing the tab with 2 spaces solved the issue.

Isn't that exactly as described in the wiki?

No? The wiki say you cannot use spaces. While it should say tabs.
