I was actually wondering about that because I haven't found a real refernce
and I've seen files with a mix of tabs and whitespace. And you're right, most
of it is just messing with the indentation. But I'll use tabs from now on :).

I see your point. In case of the search_pkg_form.php patch, well, this was a
complete rewrite/restructuring (preserving it's functionality of course). With
the end result in mind it's kinda difficult to do such a rewrite in smaller
chunks (and I dreamed about the promised cookie already :D).

Anyway, thanks for your reply, I appreaciate your advice and will do my best
to conform to these guidelines in the future :).
