Ipe currently only has the function that Inkscape calls
"Distribute with uniform gaps between objects"

Both "Align left-to-right" and "Align left and right" do this, the
difference being that for "left-to-right" you manually enter the gap
width (using "set skip"), while for "left and right" the leftmost and
rightmost object are left fixed and determine the gap width.

"Set skip", by the way, also sets the distance between text boxes (the
ones you insert with F10).
