Funny... 'This you don't get', or 'this' you don't get? May have something
to do with my using 'this' where I meant to say 'the specific case', as in
'taking into account breaks/spans'.
The first question could be solved separately (earlier), and would always
yield the dominant borders in the general cases.
*After* that question has been answered, there are still the possibilities
of page/column-breaks or row/column-spanning cells (where the generally
dominant border we already have, _may_ turn out to be incorrect)
In a very straightforward table, taking up half a page or so, and with
exactly one table grid unit per cell (no spans), the second question becomes
irrelevant and never needs to be asked.
