If you have a problem with the tabification, just reset what \t is to
something that is sane for you.

If anything, I'd be happy if someone decided to pick a sane set of
cperl-mode (or it's vi or your favorite editor equivalent) options,
and then just used that, rather than just munging through the entire
sourcecode. [That'd help those of us who have largish patches to keep
everything consistent.]
