According to Robert Bringhurst (Elements of Typographical Style), leaders in a table of contents is unsightly. This question asks about one better way to set the table of contents.
Another way, even closer to TeX's default, is to have a small space (perhaps 2em) after the section title, and then set the number right afterwards. Bringhurst does this in the actual contents of his book (picture below).
tocloft doesn't seem to support this style directly. Am I wrong in believing this? Or is there another package which enables this?
