Ok, so here's what we'll do.  I'll revert to using 1, for now... at a
later date I'd like to switch it to a higher number, just to prevent
some random conflicts... it's rather unimportant, but it's worthwhile.

Fixed in cvs.

Yeah, I've contributed to projects which said tabs were equally as
dumb.  i.e. vim's scripts require :set et ts=8 sw=8:.  In 99% of cases
it's up to the author.  In this case, I'll let judd do a "coding
format" writeup and we can all use that.  On a personal note, I prefer
:set et ts=4 sw=4: - I hate tabs, but that's a holy war I don't really
care to get into.

Personally, I could care less about whitespace, because i use vim.  If
the modelines are proper, gg=G fixes any whitespace issues...

Should be fixed now... at least it compiles and succeeds with all
pactests, and runs fine... I didn't really test it because I need to
head out in like 10 minutes, but it should be in CVS.

I'll work on this some when I get home in 5 hours or so...
