During translating fileutils, I accidentally inserted som tabulators
in the translated messages.  Jan Djärv commented that it was probably
not a good idea to introduce tabulators thet were not in the original
message, and I agreed to that.

Then we started considering if one could automate this.  One would
need to have the variable "indent-tabs-mode" set to "nil" in the edit
buffer.  (It alreade is buffer local by default.)  This can be done
with this little piece of code.  (Jan, after thinking a little bit
more after my previous letter, i realized it could be done in this

  (lambda ()
      (set-buffer po-work-buffer)
      (setq indent-tabs-mode nil)))))

But perhaps there should be some more direct way of doing this.  Some
kind of po-edit-mode-hook, perhaps?  (B.t.w., isn't the normal naming
scheme "hook" rather than "hooks"?)
