To save file space???

You (or rather, those you refer to) can't be serious. In year 2023, you do not seriously use a tab character to save three (3) bytes of space! My home PC has two 16 TB disks, one 8 TB and one 1 TB M.2 main disk - that is almost 14 trillion (English - that is 'billion' in many other countries) times the space a tab character will save.

My home PC certainly has got more disk space than most home PCs. Not only have I been using digital video cameras since they came to the market - I imported one from abroad before they were introduced in Norway - but I also have had all my old video, Super-8 and old 8mm digitized. Yet, disk capacities are generally stated in terabytes nowadays.

If you need to save 3 bytes of space here, 3 bytes there, then I guess you also need to rule out file systems that allocate disk blocks of 4 Ki size; 512 bytes would be the maximum acceptable. Maybe you should go down to the old floppy disk standard of 128 byte sectors ... Even 512 bytes rules out NTFS, but I guess you could use some FAT variant. I am not familiar with all 42 Linux file systems, but I'd be surprised if not at least a few of them can be configured for 128 bytes allocation unit. If you worry about a waste of 3 bytes for a source file indent, you will probably want to use 128 bytes units.
