http://groups.google.com/group/vim_dev/web/vim-patches (it's number 10
in the list). Of course you'll have to compile your own Vim in order to
use it, see
The patch was made against some version of Vim 7.x, I suppose it should
apply to the current 7.2 patchlevel with nothing more than a line offset
warning (if it doesn't, contact the author). As for the upcoming Vim
7.3, several of the patches on that page have already made their way
into the official alpha code (found as branch "vim73" in the same
Mercurial repository as the Vim 7.2 source), it's of course anyone's
guess whether Bram will decide also to include variable tab stops. In
the meantime you may try to apply the patch to the alpha source if you want.
