Maybe so, but it is indeed more than a recommendation, it is a de-facto
standard. If Python had never allowed mixed tabs and spaces, it might be
OK to use tabs for some projects, and spaces for others, but that's
water long since under the bridge.
Indentation is syntax in python -- we do need to all do it the same way,
and four spaces is the standard -- there simply isn't another reasonable
option if you want o share code with anyone else.
