Okay, this is all understandable.

For the record: A few days ago I changed the documentation so that it's
in a consistent state with the current code.

Since the change has been in place since 2017 what's the right thing to

- Wait a while for someone speaking out to keep the state as it is now?
  If nobody shows up, just change back to inserting to the left?
- Introduce a customizable variable for inserting to the left?

- Add a parameter to org-table-insert-column to control insertion
  left/right and possibly even the number of columns?

- Something else?

Best regards,
