Unfortunately both -thread-info and "info threads" just amount to a
call to print_thread_info. So, if we fix that to use a table, it will
change the MI output, IIUC.
FWIW, using a table in these situations seems superior to me, because
it allows for column headings and because it handles some of the
formatting bits (lining up columns) automatically.
So, at least IMO, code like this should prefer tables over things like
emitting sequences of spaces. If I'm missing some obvious drawback
here, please let me know, since I'd like to be informed...q

I think we definitely should not.
