1.4.2 mantisFixed
In Beta 2 we added the -linksource option, which creates HTML versions of 
each source file, converting tab characters to 8 spaces, and provides links 
to those files.

Provisions must be made to allow any number of spaces.  We propose -linksourcetab, which takes an integer argument specifying the number of spaces to convert to a tab.  For example:

  -linksourcetab 4

This performs the same function as -linksource but with 4 spaces per tab.
(In other words, you do not need to supply both -linksource and -linksourcetab.)
