TinyMCE Table Dropdown Plugin

If you've ever used TinyMCE for table editing, you'll know that the experience isn't usually a good one.  To prevent clutter, most developers configure the toolbar to have just the Insert/Edit Table button, which isn't nearly enough to do anything useful with tabular data.  In fact, TinyMCE's table plugin has 12 tools (i.e. buttons) available for working with tables.  The problem is they take up a lot of real estate.  They make an otherwise simple toolbar very intimidating and unintuitive for novice users.  The fact of the matter is, most people who use TinyMCE may not even need to work with tables, so those extra 12 buttons will just be in their way.
