Is there a tab-delimited columnizer?

My log files are tab-delimited. I was surprised not to find a columnizer for tab-delimited text. Did I miss it? Or should I add a feature request?

No, there's no tab-delimited columnizer.

Wow. Only one of the most common ways to delimit a text file and its not supported?

Just a thought, if we could enter \t in the CSV columnizer config that would due.
Of course you need to fix the "index out of range" error if the other values are blank.
Or alt 09, as one enters other alt characters.

Work around:
Paste a tab from Notepad.
It will throw an error when it tries to run, but the output is still columnized anyway.
