I think this is a great feature at the conceptual level, and you
know "but" is coming ;-).
- Shouldn't it be "everything from there until the end of the
current line" than "everything after that"?
- How is the display width determined and is it fixed once it gets
- How does this interact with the wrapped output? Should it?
- I am wondering if somebody ever want to do this with a follow-up
Left %h%|Center %cd%|Right %ad
Is %| a sensible choice for "flush right"? I am wondering if it
makes more sense to make %|, %< and %> as "multi-column
introducer" (the example defines output with three columns) that
also tells how text inside each column is flushed inside the
%>col 1 right flushed%|col 2 centered%< col 3 left flushed
or something like that (we may want explicit "column width"
specifiers if we were to do this kind of thing).
