No.  You can kind of approximate the effect by putting more rows
or columns into the table, as necessary, and then using
tab_joint_text() to make some text span multiple rows or columns.

e.g. the following table has 2 rows and 2 columns but the two
rows in the left column are joined.

|            |     2     |
|     1      +-----------+
|            |     3     |

This is something that we should handle better in the future, as
with so many things involved in output.
