I'm fine with #2 or #1

The oslo automaton lib also uses pretty table to generate state-machine 
tables (a useful feature to have, but not a necessity).


So I'd def help keep prettytable going, of course another option is to 
move to https://pypi.python.org/pypi/tabulate (which does seem active 
and/or maintained); tabulate provides pretty much the same thing 
(actually more table formats @ 
https://pypi.python.org/pypi/tabulate#table-format ) than prettytable 
and the api is pretty much the same (or nearly).

So that's another way to handle this (just to move off prettytable
