If this is not at all related to being able to compute/determine the actual
pixel size of various buffer/window/frame areas, in particular the "text" area,
then please excuse the interruption.

But if it does concern that, at least in part, then please reread my post.

You seem to be saying that such problems were solved long ago (Emacs 21, no
less).  But no, it is an open enhancement request to be able to compute the
buffer "text" area size in pixels, as _displayed_ (in order, e.g., to fit a
window/frame to it).

See, for example:



Again, apologies if this in fact has nothing to do with the current thread.  I
thought it did (and still think it does, so far - but you will please set me
