As far as I can see, tab is 8 spaces, and indent is 2 spaces,
throughout the Vorbis code.

That was my reaction at first, as well... But now I find myself not
hitting the long one, unless really necessary, as well. Still don't
think it's readable, though.

But we can use gnu indent, to change between "Monty readable code" and
"human readable code", of course |-)
