Description:when browsing through asterisk code it seems obvious that some people are using tabsize 4 and other tabsize 8, although it is said in the coding guidlines to use tabsize 4, but this is hidden in the indent statement which is given as example.
* explicitly tell the people to us tabsize 4
* use of space when aligning in-line comments. this makes the comments aligned even if someone disobeyed tabsize 4.
* make the indent parameters human readable, so they don't have to be looked up in the man page

if you're supposed to use tabs ... why does the tab size that you view the code matter?

AND always use tabs anyways.
