Not good.  Some syslogs will replace the literal tab with a ^I.
Maybe it should be a bunch of spaces when using syslog.
It seems a good idea to me anyway.

How would it handle multiple fields?  Say
LOG: blah blah
DETAIL: something
HINT: something else

Will it be
LOG: blah blah
        DETAIL: something else
        HINT: something else
