huh. Actually, looking at the patch it looks like the commit message
is not quite right, as that patch _is_ just changing tabs to spaces.

I *think* when I wrote the commit message I was thinking about the
previous commit that had accidentally changed the spacing of something
(the sql blocks) when I hadn't realized things were tabular, and the
previous commit was actually a breaking commit (bad me). It was easier
to fix it via ":retab" than it was to track down the errant space/tab
and redo the previous commit. I imagine if I had done a rebase and
merged those two commits, then I would have gotten a -1 like I did
anyway. ;)

So it really was just changing tabs to spaces, but that _also_ fixed a
bug that I had introduced by not realizing it was all tabs. Bad commit
message. ;_;
