While LaTeX is (supposed to be) about separation of formatting and  
content, there are few places where these sort of "automatic"  
macroscopic decisions are made. The reason being, I believe, due to  
the fact that LaTeX was slooooow back in the day and the time/memory  
for these sorts of comparisons was scarce.

Probably worthwhile...in the meantime, can you send an example of one  
of your tables both in supertabular and "regular" tabular form?
