AFAIK the tabs-in-indentation usage that is the default in erlang-mode
is "emacs standard" - certainly at least cc-mode, shell-script-mode, and
perl-mode do the same by default. And whatever you think of this
"feature" (I can agree with "silly", but not "inconsistent", let alone
"utterly"), I don't think erlang.el should hardwire something that it is
different from "standard default". You found the customization knob,
fine (and thanks for reporting it), now you - or any project that
decides on it - just need to use it.
