I guess you could set a line width guide to make the code more
readable. My issue with 4 space indents is in the best case
scenario, you end up with a large rectangular block of white
space running straight down the left hand side of the
function/struct/class/whatever, and you can get these side-ways
mountains of white space where you have to scroll to the right to
actually see the code.
Some time ago I used to use tabs (yikes!) to delimit my code
until I took a terrible contract job. The only good thing that
came out of it was that the client insisted that the code be
2-space delimited, which I didn't even know was a thing. Lol!
After that job I don't do fixed cost contracts, and I indent code
with 2 spaces.
