Is it possible to justify the title of the table to the left. Currently

Ah, I see. Yeah, I’ve been quitely merging patchs and adding things,
probably not the best of practices.

because I’ll be doing a better job of keeping folks informed of what’s
to come and what’s there by then.
That’s why it’s taking me so long, I’m trying to transition from an
alpha product to something that looks like it might actually see a 1.0
Things will get better soon.
