Tom,
I think when you are talking about most of the indeterminate varieties, it 
would not be advisable to even consider a closer than two foot spacing. 
Indeterminates need the space. 
Using some of the more compact hybrids and pruning them, you might be able to 
get by with a closer spacing but then you open the plants up to having their 
air circulation reduced thus creating an envirnoment that makes it difficult 
to work in , not to mention the pressure from disease.
