Why are emacs' alignment tools so difficult and cumbersome to use? Most of them seem to have no effect on plain text, and the ones that do require messy regex.

I will literally copy-paste into `cat |column -t` and paste back into emacs to get what I want faster than I can coax emacs into aligning a bunch of text into columns.

I really should just write my own function to do that in emacs. :|
