Personally I've always found the use of a <tab> to be highly
objectionable anywhere that it would appear to be a single space under
normal de-facto standard 8-spaces-per-tabstop situations.

In this particular case I've never ever been shown any rational for
using a tab.  The only one I've ever been able to imagine is that if you
have a collection of #define and #undef lines interleaved together then
it might be nice to have the second token alligned and thus a tab before
every token would be the most consistent form.  However I never mix a
group of #define and #undef lines.
