I am talking about writing another table class which is designed to
render (x)html tables.  It would make fundamentally different tradeoffs
to ours.  In the long term I think we need both - HTML tables for
intricate "one-off" tables with spanning and nesting, in a language
which everyone knows how to do, and our own for 'styled' tables which
are very good for financial and database work.
