Tabs mid-line will cause alignment issues when you change the tab size. Using spaces mid-line will avoid that issue. Why does that matter? Because the stated reason for many people for using tabs is to allow different developers to indent differently because some like an indent of 4 while others like an indent of 2 and still others 3. I've even seen 5 spaces for a tab. So, while your multi-column struct layouts, method argument arrangements, etc are all nice and pretty for you, someone else viewing them with their different preferred tab setting will see them all skeewampus. Additionally, many differencing tools assign 8 spaces to a tab and now your tab indentation and mid-line alignments are really fubar when viewing the differences. Using spaces mid-line will at least avoid the massive misalignment of those bits of code.
