Think about it:  your attempt to make a constant width field will
involve something like the characters `*', `%', and SPC, all of which
are different widths -- and you don't even know the widths (not that
would do you much good if you did).

For an example, try out `msb-mode'.  It rearranges the Buffers menu,
puts the buffer status on the left side like you suggest.  It apparently
tries to line everything up, and the result is quite crappy looking.

A zen-buddhist walked into a pizza shop and
said, "Make me one with everything."
