[texhax] Simulating dotted leading

Is there a (relatively) simple way of simulating the dotted leading used in table columns (\tabular) in old documents to separate text on the left from a number on the right?  I specifically want to produce something like this in a \multicolumn 2-column span:
        Mirror, duplex   ...   ...   ...   ...   ...   1
To line this up with similar rows above and below, I can set a fixed space between the two sides in the first row, and fill following rows with rubber space.  But not with dotted leading! 
Incidentally, I have to use a 2-column span because the table becomes 2-column further down.
