Can we float images to the left/right with reStructured Text?

There is a very nice blog entry in Vasudevaservice.com about how we could use CSS classes in reStructured Text. On this site there is an align-left class to float our images to the left and a similar one to the right, now I'm wondering will reStructured text do the needful....

So lets type the following reStructured Text for our image:

.. figure:: /gallery/d/162213-2/DSCF0615.JPG
   :alt: Yaaaaaaaaay!
   :figclass: align-left

and see what happens:

Yaaaaaaaaay!

He's happy and I'm happy.

Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!

As you can see, the image very nicely sits to the left.

You can view this image and more in the very nice photo gallery by Bipin Larkin from New York....
