We should really stop pgindent from converting those double-spaces to
tabs. Those tabs are later changed to three or four spaces when wording
of the comment is changed, and things start looking very odd.

Really, we should get out of patched BSD indent entirely already. How
about astyle, for instance? I'm told that with some sensible options,
the diff to what we have now is not very large, and several things
actually become sensible (such as function pointer decls, which are
messed up rather badly by pgindent)
