That's my view about how that specific file would be after
converted to ReST:

I don't have any troubles reading/understanding it as a plain text
file, and its html output is also nice (although Sphinx 1.7.8 seems to
have some issues when parsing some cells - probably due to some bug):

Changbin's approach was somewhat close to what you want. He simply
prepended the tables with ::, in order to show them as plain old

Both equally works, from ReST conversion PoV. I'm fine ether way.

I prefer my approach, as, IMHO, it is visually nicer on both text and
html versions, but his approach is likely easier to maintain, as doing
ascii artwork by hand is sometimes painful.
