Yes, presets are nice, and I appreciate the better performance, but if I
can setup stuff like striped tables or some other “advanced” formatting
without explicite settings within the table, I prefer that.
I can stay with “natural tables” (and “tabulate” for easy cases), but
the auto-stretching of rows or whole tables _is_ missing.
Unfortunately, this is a situation like in LaTeX: We have a choice of
table “packages”, but none of them covers my most common use cases.
