...there's already a rowspan markup for advanced tables... it's "rowspan".  :-)

    (:table border=1:)
    (:cellnr:) Hello
    (:cell rowspan=3:) This cell spans three rows
    (:cellnr:) Apple
    (:cellnr:) Banana
    (:cellnr:) Cherry
    (:cell:) column2

This produces a table like:

   |Hello    |This cell spans three rows
   +---------+                          |
   |Apple    |                          |
   +---------+                          |
   |Banana   |                          |
   |Cherry   |  column2                 |
