Why only pick one part then? Why not go through the whole source and make it
all comply?

One good reason is that it makes tracking changes harder, as soon as the tab
"fix" gets checked in, cvs annotate for those files will be significantly
less useful. To track a real change you will need to perform multiple diffs
involving the tab fix boundary or remember to ignore whitespace (which is no
help with cvs annotate).

White space and other style patches just make the temporal attribute of a
real change harder to determine.
