Summary: (feature) basic table editing needs to be implemented → [Dogfood] basic table editing needs to be implemented (insert rows/columns)
If we are to have insert table, we should have insert row/column also as
dogfood.  Most people do not create the right size table at the beginning.
Note that this task could be split into 2 phases: Inserting a new row or column
is easy in a table without COLSPAN and/or ROWSPAN > 1 set on any cells.
This could be implemented quickly. It is the COLSPAN and ROWSPAN effects that
make this a more difficult problem.
Insert Column is actually already mostly implemented. I can't test it now
since XUL dialogs are completely messed up today!
Whiteboard: [PDT+]
PDT+ for:
Insert Row
Insert column
delete row
delete column

The rest can wait for beta.
Target Milestone: M13 → M12
Charley -- I agree with the 2 phase approach. Go ahead and implement the cols
and rows insertion now, then mark this bug fixed. Submit a new bug for the
implementation of colspan and rowspan and set it to somewhere between M13 & M16.

Most of the work is done, but I would like to continue for a couple more days
before clearing this as fixed, so I changed the completion date.
