Being a (very) curious beast, I of course looked up tocloft even
though I finally achieved an uneasy (*) peace with titletoc (an
independent part of titlesec).
The doc of Titlesec / titletoc warns that " it should be clear that
this is not a package for the casual user" p22.
By contrast, the documentation of tocloft seems to be a lot easier to
read: I think even I could follow it.
(*) I was never able to right-justify the chapter toc's to the right
