bug#32281: shr.el align support patch

Lars Ingebrigtsen yeah I knew you'd say smth like that :-)
I wanted to make Emacs view fb2 files (ebooks), and I wanted to convert them into HTML and view them in EWW, but I've just found out that nov.el is a great package that displays epub files and I'll rather convert fb2 files to epub and view them in it.
So I withdraw this patch, can't say it was somehow slow on pages I tested though.

My guess is that this would be so slow as to make shr/eww unusable on
typical pages.

shr lives within the constraints of being written in a slow language
(Emacs Lisp) and eschews features that makes it too slow for normal
usage. There's a gazillion rendering features we could add, but we
haven't because it's not practical within normal timing constraints.
