Actually, I was just thinking along those lines.

And I was also just testing these patches a little more, and realized that  
when there is no (or very little) text in the third column, a browser may make  
the layout a little awkward, ie. too spaced on the page.

Anyway, an attribute for the DirectoryResource would be beneficial for  
further customization...  And a couple of error checks to make sure the table  
layout is truly 'pretty'.... and consistent.
