Summary0004665: Format: printf syntax for tab boxes
DescriptionIn order to be homogeneous (and to write shorter code), it will be nice for tabulation boxes to have a printf syntax -- something like


for opening the box (and the usual @] for closing it -- if at all possible given it is a separate function for tab boxes) and, say,

  @| @\t

for resp. setting and printing tabs.

This is really minor but I thought I'd let you know anyway.

The proposed printf-like syntax is fine, but tabulation boxes are now deprecated.

Indeed, tabulation boxes interaction with other pretty-printing boxes have never been sorted out and tabulation boxes usage is orthogonal to the rest of the Format module.

If considered useful, tabulation boxes could be implemented out of the Format module.
