That's also fine.

We have markers for that.  But if narrowing solves your problem, it's
okay to use that.

Can you explain why?  I still don't think I understand.

To support proportional fonts, we need:

  . convert all the calculations to work in pixels instead of in
    columns (or, equivalently, in units of the canonical character
    width, in which case you then must use floating-point values)
  . put on some (or all?) SPC characters a :width display property,
    with the suitably calculated width in pixels

The infrastructure for all of that already exists, it's just a matter
of coding.
