    ok, I've found the suitable options conditionally for plaintext:
    marginbelow { 0f }
    marginabove { 1f }
> * use '-', '_', '|' characters for table rules instead of dots
    I've also found
    ruleplainchar { - }
    option, but it modifies uniformly all ruler characters.
    What about introducing at least the following two options?
        horizontalruleplainchar { - }
        verticalruleplainchar { | }
    and possibly 
    uperleft, uperright....?

> * a possibility to set absolut positions
    This third question is still too hard for me.
    Can anyone give an advice how to start?

And a new question: even a matrix printer in character mode is able to
produce characters in _normal_ and _condensed_ mode. It would enable us
to use two different font size optionally in text documents meant to be
printed on such a printer. 

How does is it sound for a lout expert? is it possible?
