You can still do it with a real horizontal tab character. If that doesn't
satisfy you, you can set a variable that contains a tab (or a space and a
tab) and use it with "$" interpretation:
and then write things like
* $ ^Header-Name:[$SPACETAB]*\/[^$SPACETAB].*
As another approach, do you have an editor that can make tabs visible as ^I
or \t while you edit your rcfile?
