I'll finally give in and add tabs in 2.2, but there'll definitely be no 
backspace support or VT100 control codes such as clear screen, cursor 
movement etc. because these things have no room in modern clients.

  does not resolve the \t character

Status in Mudlet the MUD client:

Bug description:
  Mudlet does not seem to support the \t character (tab). On muds where
  this is used, Mudlet prints nothing. It does not indent at all. What
  is expected is either showing the tab character or 8 spaces, but
  neither happens, and things that are aligned using tabs make things
  look all wonky, like maps, etc.

  Mudlet: 2.1
  OS: OSX 10.8.2
