Short answer:  I've decided not to try to get fmt=authtable
into the 2.1.0 release.

Longer (better) answer:  This isn't to say I think this isn't important --
I *know* it's important.  The problem is that I haven't
yet come up with an overall output format and structure for this 
that I think is good enough to place into the core.

However, I recognize that people really need the capability, and that
it would be better to have a mediocre implementation available somewhere
(that we can improve upon) than to have nothing at all.  So, what I'm
likely to do for this feature is to prototype some ideas as cookbook 
recipes, which we can then refine and improve upon.  When we come up with
something reasonable, it can be easily added to the core.
