Tabs are holy.  Spaces, no matter how many, are just a cheap substitute.

Any yes, any line shall never exceed 80 characters, that's the eleventh commandment!

They are something more, even for tyou, otherwise you'll be doing 0-spaces.

Now, you can't, you can do 39 and 19, otherwise it's just an empty
line with trailing whitespace ( which lately luacheck likes to
complain about ).

And, with 3 spaces, you can do 25 levels plus fgh() ( I was trying to
find a useful lua construct in two chars for 26*3, did not find any,
biut did not try too hard ).
