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.
