Right now if you have "Auto-enter spaces" enabled (it should be off by 
default), then Wing enforces PEP8 spacing.  You may want to turn it off 
if you want to use other types of spacing.  I will try to add an 
"enforce PEP8" option that you can disable that enforcement 
independently of auto-entering spaces.
