It's a reference to a possible library of duplicatable functions that
would doc individual fields into columns and rows and size them
properly based on border sizes for each row or column. It should also
set line hight and font types and sizes. It should probably be done as
an array or set of arrays and stored using a pull-parser in MTML. :-)
There should also be global attributes for column formatting. All this
should be like a spreadsheet layout processor. It should even handle
the naming conventions for each field with names like r1c1, r2c1, r1c2,
etc... It should even handle math attributes for running calculations
from one field, ranges of fields into another field or fields. In other
words it should be a stack that acts like a storable spreadsheet.
Having object control over individual field objects could lead to
extremely powerful acting spreadsheets.
Now there's a bit of work for the person that has nothing better to do.
