I took a look at the source and found readTabDelimitedFile in tools.js.

It turns out aliases can be either pipe-delimited or tab-delimited,
but the function considers them interchangeable so you can mix pipes
and tabs in the same file, and I don't see a way of escaping.

That's annoying... Could you file a bug for it, and I'll try and fix
it up when I have some time?
