So you do something like Linux did:

Line continuations work as usual?

I mean if you were going for an exact number of spaces per indentation
(which above you appear not to be doing), then variable width fonts will
make it hard to count if you have 4 or 3 spaces in front of a line.
Sometimes I have a hard enough time with 1 or 2 just between characters
depending on font size.
