[Agda] LaTeX-Backend: \renewcommand{\defaultcolumn}{...} shows no effect

\defaultcolumn is the command to set the default column, so by using 
\renewcommand{\defaultcolumn}{...} you're redefining the command that 
sets the default column, not redefining the default column itself. You 
should be able to use \defaultcolumn{...} in your own LaTeX file, you 
shouldn't have to edit agda.sty.
