It would be nice, but logically it's not critical and can be done
at any time. We would do it if a commercial RML customer had a need,
but this has never caused us any trouble. So, I'd say we are waiting
for a volunteer or volunteers to roll their sleeves up and work on it
IMHO a full HTML-like table rendering algorithm like this will be slow
different goals to our current tables. It would make perfect sense to
two different kinds of tables with different design goals.
