And I believe that a reasonable expectation is symmetry with inserting a
row.  The way I think of it is the arrow indicates to make space by
moving columns/rows in that direction.  Most spreadsheets work in this
way, in my experience (but I could be wrong).

Unfortunately, this only inserts a cell, not a column.
