Well now you're talking, that's the only argument until now that makes sense - by choosing tabs for indentation you can choose how it looks visually i.e. how wide the indentation is, with spaces that's fixed and you don't have that flexibility. So yes, if you use tabs consistently and only for indentation then there's something to be said for it.
