The Usage in the print.data.frame help page says:

print(x, ..., digits=NULL, quote=FALSE, right=TRUE)

meanwhile, down in the Arguments section it says:

  right: logical, indicating whether or not strings should be
           right-aligned. The default is left-alignment.

This seems to be at odds with the right=TRUE in the Usage, and with what I see
when I print a data.frame.
