Subject: Re: Bug: org-element does not recognize table.el tables [9.4 (release_9.4-53-g23f941 @ /home/nick/elisp/org-mode/lisp/)]

A few years ago I was trying to format tables in a certain specific
way and it was essentially impossible with org tables for reasons that
now escape me. However, it was possible to accomplish it using
tabels.el tables. I don't think I ended up actually using the
tables.el solution, but at the time it would have been the only
option. If memory serves I think it had to do with multiline cells or
something of that nature. While it would be nice to be able to
converge on a single implementation for tables, I suspect that there
are still users of tabels.el that would be left out in the cold if
that functionality was removed. It would be great if we could find
some examples of org files or users that use the tabels.el
functionality so we can understand what org tables are missing. Best,
Tom
