[NTG-context] xtables: stretch a single column

xtables offers option=stretch to stretch the whole table evenly. Is
there also a way (without manually calculating the width) to stretch
the whole table using a given column?
Short use case:
I have a table with three columns. Column 1 has an external figure,
column 3 a variable length (but still short) text/string and column 2
has either no text at all or maybe a longer phrase. Columns 1 and 3
should be auto-sized (i.e as small as possible) while column 2 should
be as width as necessary, to make the whole table fit perfectly onto
the page (width-wise; height doesn't matter for now).
I think with natural tables it was possible to set width=broad for a
certain column. Is something like that possible with xtables as well?
