Frame lets you set tab stops in 0.001-inch increments via the Paragraph
Designer window (that's one dot at 1000 dpi), in 0.003-inch increments by
dragging tabs on the ruler, or in 0.125-inch increments by dragging on
the ruler with Graphics>Snap turned on.

I'm curious about what case you have where you need finer control. :)
