Silly me, I read your message wrong, I think. The alignment of the 
numbers does not matter, it's the alignment of the labels 
(in/out/current/average/max/etc) that matters.  If I use left alignment, 
all of the groups (in/out/icmp/etc) should left align.  Additionally, 
the Current labels should be left aligned, likewise with Average and 
Max. That is, if \t existed, and I used it. Here's an (ugly) example:
