I've had a chance to look at this now, and although it certainly does
seem workable, there's a lot of duplication of code that I feel uneasy
about. describeOneTableDetails essentially already duplicates the
table buildling code in printQuery, so I would be creating a third
copy of the same logic.
This makes me wonder whether print.c could offer something a bit more
helpful to callers wishing to DIY a table; we could have a
table-building struct with methods like addHeader and addCell.
What do you think? Overkill, or worthy pursuit?
