The whitespaces line up just fine. However, I noticed that while other elvi do
this by using tab characters, bookfinder does this with a space and tab
character. Instead of messing around with the elvi, I decided to make the
script more robust.

Ah, yes, I forgot about @AWK@, sorry. I also noticed that the grep before the
awk call can be removed by just changing the awk pattern. I'll submit another
fix one of these days...
