This is now implemented in SVN as a 'Tabs and Spaces' indent type
preference and per-document setting, plus a Tab Width pref (the old
pref is now called Indent Width). The main editing actions should
work as expected in the new mode, but some of Geany's code insertion
features (e.g. default file templates) might still use tabs. Feel free
to file bugs/requests to improve things further (or post here).

Maybe you're aware that there's a hidden pref to enable this (see the
manual). I'm not sure why it's off by default? But maybe it needs a GUI
