Sure, my thinking was that it may be more natural to use the environment
type as the function name (allowing more concise function calls).  Also,
that way if there are some arguments that only make sense for particular
environment (I'm not sure that there are) then it would be easy to
customize the functions on a per-environment bases.  But if these
environments are all pretty similar
- tabular*
- booktabs
- longtable
- tablex
- array
then I guess one single function is the way to go.

I'll add this to the library-of-babel.org in
contrib/babel/library-of-babel.org and please feel free to play around
with the function definition.  This file lives in the contrib directory
to encourage user participation -- in fact maybe the
library-of-babel.org (or a copy) should move to Worg.

Thanks -- Eric
