Sorry, can't follow you. If there is an indentation scheme and some code in
the repository violates that scheme, what is so wrong in fixing that?

You're mixing the way the files get stored with how they get displayed.

Vi automatically converts the leading spaces to
tabs, assuming the standard tab setting at every 8 characters.

What Vi converts is highly dependant on personal settings. IMHO someone had
code committed accidentally with the wrong settings or another editor, who

Everyone that has hard tabs != 8 never worked with a real terminal.

Even more so, the code in BSXML assumes that a leading tab equals 3
spaces ...

No, that's not true.
