I can survive, I guess, except for one thing.  The project really *needs* a
standard for tab stops.  (I'm talking about "what does a tab char represent",
as opposed to C indentation style.)  My preference would be mod 8, but mod 4
or even 2 would be acceptible so long as it's uniform throughout the code.

An example of this problem can be seen in encoder_example.c, lines 117-127.
Most of the file is mod 8, but it looks like someone added these lines with a
mod 4 setting.  The result is a file that can't be viewed correctly no matter
how you set your tabs, as far as I can see.

(To be fair, I should mention that I think Jack disagrees with me on this.)
