Yes, I can wait. I can probably hold them off on this feature for a bit by
doing some formatting of a grid around a table. Thanks for the response!

We haven't done this yet, but I have often wanted the same thing in a
table of contents. I guess we need a special flowable to do this.
(which would be a useful precursor to the totally-automatic
table-of-contents object everyone wants...).

Contributions are welcome, but we might well be able to look at this
after Dec 15th if you can wait. Our major customers seem to be wanting
a Christmas break, so we might get a couple of week's relative quiet to
do a release
with some new features ;-)
