Just to add to the confusion...

My system (a Xerox Star) displays mail in a proportionally spaced font,
making all diagrams hard to read without changing the font.
I'm not sure if this is a bug or a feature, however.

In general, I think that having the mailer expand the tabs would be a bad
idea. There might be reasons for wanting the tabs in the message and it shouldn't
be impossible to do this. The user mail agent might do that sort of processing
by default, however. For example, if I try to send a message that includes
font changes, etc. the mailer asks if I really want to send formatted text,
and strips the formatting if I don't.
