The leading spaces are preserved in the list object, but since they
are being displayed in a table cell, they don't appear in the GUI.

I can think of two possibilities, each a little messy:
1. You could use bin/withlist to add leading to the
topics... and then never edit the topics through the GUI again. (You
can't use the web GUI since it will escape the &.)
2. Modify your Mailman/Cgi/options.py where it does "Create the
topics radios" and replace the leading spaces of the topic name with
' ' when building the topics table rows.
