nvim: Add space/tab/wrap settings for common filetypes

Unlike my previoius vim config, which was 4-spaces by default, I'm
piloting "TAB as TAB" by default, unless I'm in one of the filetypes I
usually work in (all of which use spaces).

With this, I like using linebreak and showing space via listchars (super
helpful with python!)
