one find the latest patch. I found one patch against Vim 7.1 I think,
but I figured, it probably doesn't apply anymore and it was pretty big.
I think, once this patch is included, adding a 'tabstopexpr' setting isn't
much work. That should be reasonable, just replace a bunch of buf->b_p_ts
by a call to a function which returns the tabstop setting.
