Quick response I'd say.  Nice work.

I'm not sure if tabs are supposed/guarantied to work.

Try without tabs, using only spaces to line up your legend.

Only spaces are stripped ***___in_the_current_version_of_rrdtool___***
so using hard spaces ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_space ) will
probably work.

Does it really?  I think \g works from right to left and stops as soon
as it does not find spaces anymore?  This would mean spaces within a
string should survive.  Can you create an example?
