No, not really.  But I wouldn't mind too much if you'd implement it
based on tabulated list mode if that seems valuable thus making it an
emacs24-only feature.  I mean, we shouldn't break compatibility in
existing features (at least not without good reasons), but for new stuff
I prefer to implement them in the most maintainable way, and that
excludes reinventing the wheel.
