bug-cvs was not delivering any mail up for about two months.  If the
gateway was down during that time, we wouldn't have known.

I'd actually be up for changing them in the CVS source since the mix of
spaces and tabs makes it impossible to reset tab stops usefully anyhow,
but I'd prefer going to all tabs with a default tabstop of 4, which
would look the same.  :)

As for your cutting and pasting, one of your programs probably converted
the tabs into spaces and at first glance it looks like this patch has
the same problem.  I know that using netscape as an emailer and a diff
viewer, cutting and pasting from the browser window to the email window
preserves the tabs.  I'm not sure what other combinations work.

Thanks for adding the ChangeLog entry and test cases, though I would
have preferred to see actualy sanity.sh test cases.  Could you try again
to get a patch to the list that preserves the tabs?
