Hi Arnold,

    Is there a general, easy way, to center floats, including their captions?
    Mainly for TeX, where the floats are mainly @mulitable

As Patrice said ... no.  Not even a specific and difficult way, let
alone general and easy.  And it's hard for me to picture a decent way to
specify such a thing :(.  

A block command for centering analogous to @flushleft/@flushright (or
@raggedright) would not be helpful.  What's desired is not centering
invididual lines of text (or table row) individually, but rather to
typeset a whole paragraph/table and center that.  Except as soon as
there is normal text the whole line width is used so there is nothing to
center.  Quickly gets complicated.

Commands like @centercaption and @centermultitable are about all I can
imagine that would be implementable, and that would be so horribly ugly ...
