It's actually easier than even I thought. I knew this part last night. 

The indentation is controlled by the number of equal signs. 
== Level 1 title=== Level 2 title (indented more in the TOC)
Last night I thought the section numbering might have to be manually inserted. However I just found out about the :numbered: attribute. That one inserts auto numbers which are controlled by the title level, like above. 

Now it is a 1 line addition for :numbered: and 2-3 line mods for the indentation. 

Very nice.
