In my configuration, fill-paragraph doesn't do anything to my tables.
I don't even have this `LaTeX-indent-environment-list' variable. Could
you please check?

In the meantime, I updated my function so that it removes useless
spaces and aligns '\\' too:

(defun LaTeX-align-table ()
    (while (re-search-forward "& *" (region-end) t)
      (replace-match "& " nil nil))
    (align-regexp (region-beginning) (region-end)
"\\(\\s-*\\)\\(&\\|\\\\\\\\\\)" 1 1 t)))

if you have a function that automatically makes a tabular environment
clean by aligning all '&' and '\\' vertically then my function is
useless. But I haven't found any yet.
