The default alignment of markdown table should be left-aligned?

Julia’s default tables are right-aligned (See documentation), but many other markdown parsers default to left-aligned (e.g. GitHub markdown).

I have made some PRs to some docs (PlotDocs.jl, Images.jl) because left-alignment is easier to read in many tables, and I have come to the conclusion that it would be better to change Julia to default to left-alignment.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
