Haml expects that where there is to be indentation, that indentation is 
to be exactly 2 spaces.  Not 1, not 3, or 4, but 2.  It isn't enough 
that a line start in a new column further to the right, it has to start 
in a very specific column relative to its parent.

However, there are cases where the content is such that I want to 
emphasize it or offset it in some way using whitespace.

My experience has been that this isn't allowed.
