#' Detect Column Alignment
#'
#' Many of the specialized functions in numform can change the type of the data
#' from numeric to character causing the table formatting functions in various
#' add-on packages to improperly align the elements.  This function passes the
#' columns with a regular expression to detect alignment regardless of column
#' class.
#'
#' @param x A \code{data.frame}.
#' @param left A value to print for left aligned columns.
#' @param right A value to print for right aligned columns.  If \code{left = "l"}
#' \code{right} will default to \code{"r"} otherwise defaults to \code{"right"}.
#' @param additional.numeric An additional regex to consider as numeric.  To turn
#' off this feature use \code{additional.numeric = NULL}.
#' @param sep A string to collapse the vector on.
#' @param \ldots ignored.
#' @return Returns a vector of lefts and rights or a string (if \code{sep} is not
#' \code{NULL}.
