I don't know if it's more graceful, but I use a run-in paragraph for <$chapnum> and a separate in-column paragraph for the rest. This puts everything on the same line (if it fits), but allows the page number to have its own left indent and tab stop settings. A single right-aligned tab stop then works whether the TOC entry flows to one line or two. Mike Wickham
