Subject: Automatic formatting of the table as you type

The other day a code was posted on Reddit which automatically formats
the table as you type:


The code looks pretty simple, the actual formatting code is only a few lines
and it might even be possible to rewrite it to simplify it even more:


Org should provide this feature out of the box as an optional minor
mode like org-indent-mode. It provides a much nicer user experience
than the current behavior where the table falls apart when you type in
it until you press TAB or such.
