Reply to: Convert <table> to <simpletable>

Right, so, assuming the person is knowledgeable enough to know what they are doing (ie: when it is a good time to use simpletable vs table) we're probably OK.

Such a script might simply only be able to give an error in these cases like: “sorry, can't do that” (and then hopefully nothing happens to the original table) unless we put quite a bit of effort into it to detect beforehand if any of these more advanced table structures are there.
