while designing the cals package, I thought about how much decorations
should be implemented. The showstopper is: imagine

one cell wants red dotted 4pt border, another cell wants green dashed 2pt
border. If these cells are connected, how does the common border look

I have not found a satisfactory answer. Therefore, cals supports only
background color for cells and widths for borders.
