Thanks a bunch for the samples. I didn't have time to get into them today,
but will get into it next week. I really appreciate the help!

Attached is a slightly more flexible drawTabbedString handler, which
handles left, center, right, and decimal tabs, with space, dot, dash,
and underline fill.
I have this accept a string with embedded \t tab characters. It would be
cleaner to have it accept a list or tuple, thus allowing the caller to
split the string using other separators, but that makes the name a bit
