[Biopython-dev] tabs in doctest results?

I am working on the doctests in TreeConstructor.py.
for example in this doctest
I can't get the test to accept the output. Even when the Expect looks the
same as the Got.
I am think this might be related to "All hard tab characters are expanded
to spaces"(python docs) and it looks like the output uses spaces.
And in fact I can fix my problem if I replace the \t with 4 spaces in the
above __str__

Recommendations as to how to fix this?
