I've written a patch which implements the same \du behaviour as my
previous patch, but using the new printTable API I submitted in [1].

If the printTable API patch is rejected or substantially changed, we
will need to revisit this patch.

The new patch constructs a table manually, in the same manner as
describeOneTableDetails, so that we get the same outputs as the
original patch but without any of the localisation issues identified
by Tom and Alvaro.

I have attached a patch against my printTable code, containing only
the changes I made to describeRoles() (du-attributes_1.diff.bz2), and
a combined patch against HEAD containing the full printTable API
changes as well as the changes to describeRoles()

No memory problems detected by valgrind, and all regression tests
passed on x86_64 gentoo.

I've added this item to the May CommitFest wiki page.
