I have tried to insert @{} in various places but with no luck.

Below is an example (without the body text even the first two tables do
not line up) to show why I would like it to work. Given that this is not
for print but for uploading under GPL it does not really matter but I
think I am beginning to catch the "typesetting" bug.
