imo, the table tool is broken beyond repair.
and probably needs a reboot.

the UI is not intuitive at all.
the code behind it might or not do what one thinks. we don't know.

personally, i can finally add and remove lines and setup the table as i want (if i wanted it...).
but i cannot find any rational link between a click and the result coming out of it.

we need somebody sitting down and write down a specification for it.
a few use cases and documentation included.

and, then, somebody (does not have to be a different person) going through the code and make sure that the code behaves accordingly to the specifications.

probably, the changes are not huge, but i fear that just fixing things will not lead to a good tool.
"restarting" the project (without removing the code, just remixing it) looks like a better option to me.

This must be resolved before we release 1.6.0.
