I (finally) took a look at this again and it appears that :align-to as
used in buff-menu.el with some additional tweaking pretty much DTRT
after all.  With my variable-pitch font (Dejavu Sans) I find the spacing
between "%CPU" and "%Mem" too crowded; using fixed-pitch looks better,
and that's what the attached patch does.  Alternatively, I think it
looks fine to let the header line font be variable-pitch as long as the
let-bound variable whitespace is set to two spaces.  I actually think
this makes the proced listings also more legible, though it does leave
less space for the process invocation listing and is also a departure
from the Dired display that Proced is modelled on.  Anyway, I'd be happy
with either approach; both are better than the current display when the
header-line face is variable-pitch.
