I have a big problem here.  Remember that tables created with tbl even
work if .TS and .TE are undefined.  I can't accept an extension which
needs those two macros defined somehow.  Please try to find a solution
which avoids that dependency.  You probably have to extend the macros
defined by tbl directly.
