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.
