But, as I wrote, Lisp APIs are already using
...-width/...-height for columns and lines.  Even if we
implement pixel-base APIs in the future, we can't change the
current ones, then we'll use ...-pixel-width...-pixel-height
for the new APIs.  In that case, having a different
convention in C code is not good.
