I'm writing in RST a lot of documentation, and I noticed that RST-tables 
are very similar to org-mode tables.

This makes me think that I could use happily turn-on-orgtbl and use it, 
but the tables are not exactly the same.

+--------+-------+---+---+
| THi is | table |   |   |
+--------+-------+---+---+
|        |       |   |   |
+--------+-------+---+---+

One difference is in the use of "+", is there a way to make orgtbl 
produce something like this too?

I think table.el tables look like this.

Didn't know about that, thanks!
It's not, however, as convenient as org-mode tables are unfortunately...

Which is why you can switch between table.el and org tables with C-c C-c
(to recognize an existing table) and then C-c ~ to convert it between
the two formats if possible.  You do lose some formatting going back and
forth, though.

Very nice thanks a lot!
True some formatting is lost, but already just org-mode-tables.el
automatic conversion is quite nice, and might come handy.
