Alas, that does NOT do what I require: while the integers among the numbers are right-aligned with respect to one another, the decimal point in the floats is aligned with the right-most digit of those integers rather than to the right of those right-most digits. I require that the numbers be aligned "as if" they were aligned on decimal points, except that the decimal points of the integers do not actually appear.
