I would like to ask some help for finding the right fmt _expression_ to
print entries formatted as like this:

2015-11-20 foo bar baz... Some·Label   Some·Other·Label
                             -123.23            -100.00

The hard part is obviously the last columns. Both are fed in a list of
entries consisting of (label amount).  All positive amounts should be
printed in the first column the negative ones in the second.

Your example is split across 4 lines, is this what you intended?
It's not really clear what the rule is.

The columnar/tabular formatters are oriented around formatting
single rows, so if you want to use them you'd need to first group
the data accordingly.
