Thanks Alan. It woks.
Using the titletoc package it is possible to have the TOCs displays the
page  numbers of the various sections on the left hand side of the TOC page.

Apparently this is a way of customizing the TOC/LOF/LOT nobody speaks of. I
made a Google search but I didn't find any instruction/hint in LaTeX
manuals, webpages, online FAQs or forums. Strange, since there are printed
books with TOCs done like that. And it is very handy since the number page
is close to the section title, not  far close to the other side of the page.

Just, it is a pity the actual version doesn't yet support all the possible
float objects created by the user, but only the standard ones (Table and
Figures). The creator says next version will better support floats.
Thanks again.
