Hm.  Will this work for e.g. `default-frame-alist'?  It need to have
integers, not expressions that can vary depending on the font or
display (consider multi-head X where the screens has different
resolutions, `frame-char-width' would probably return different values
depending on which screen it is on).  It doesn't look very reliable to
calculate "half fringe width" (if there isn't something better than
the above), so perhaps the "half width" option should be removed.
