For what it's worth: I use four spaces. My company has its own internal
style guide which differs from Olivine Labs', I was just pointing at it
because it's kind of popular.
There is clearly not a community-wide style. I do like languages that
have one (Python, Go...) but history makes it hard to do for Lua.
I think style guide are important at company- or project- level: you
typically don't want mixed styles in your code base.
At community level I don't care about this. If we could all agree on
things that matter even when you don't look at the code (e.g. usage
of globals in modules, etc) I would be happy.
