Why untabify at all?  Using tabs and spaces is the default GNU coding
style, so why should we stray from that?

(It's an uphill battle you'll lose anyway, because many people, yours
truly included, have indent-tabs-mode set non-nil, which will add back
tabs in the portions where changes are made.  So with time, the tabs
creep back again, and it's a maintenance burden to untabify them time
and again.)
