Minor request for clarification:

I read in the Developer's FAQ that tabs should be interpreted as 4
spaces. ...and also that pgindent replaces tabs as spaces.

Trouble is, there are tabs throughout the code. What gives?

Should I be replacing tabs as spaces, or leaving them alone? At all?
Only in patches I submit? Everywhere? 

I have no opinion either way as to what should be done. Please advise.
