Hi Nicolas,  I use 4-space tabs, and I've documented somewhere that that's the house style for OpenSmalltalk.  I would much rather see us keep to this and reformat files to agree with it than allow an 8 space tab style.  As we know 8 space tabs indent too much and result in the awful mixed tab and space indent style that makes sources look so ugly if one gets the tab size wrong, and basically reads the viability of one choosing one's tab style.  Further, Smalltalk (at last Smalltalk080 & Squeak) uses a 4 space tab and all the generated sources assume 4 space tabs.  So can we please change the tab size in .editorconfig to 4?
