[Remind-Fans] substitution and indentation

Hi again --
So I now know about [substitution] and it's made my boldfacing look quite
lovely. It occurred to me that perhaps I could use this to standardize
indentation (yes, I'm kinda obsessive about that).
I have a top-level remindrc file and I include a number of other remind
files from there (part of the reason for my query regarding other
calendars suitable for a system or a family) with a header before each.
I'd like for included remind files to each indent two more spaces than
the last. I tried
set idnt ""
set odnt ""
set odnt [idnt]
set idnt "[idnt] "
set idnt [odnt]
with the include file structure of
REM date ... MSG [idnt]message-contents
but all I got on my output was
instead of the expected stacked indentation. I turned around and tried
it inside the include file but that didn't work, either.
How can I increase and decrease my indentation in a programmatic manner
that will work at any depth of inclusion (I could manually set idnt to
two, four, six, or eight spaces but if the file were included in a
different order by someone else then those would be incorrect)?
