yes, that's the plan.  i think the only computation using columns that might
result in unexpected behavior would be those involving division (for example,
`center-line' or some of the alignment packages).  i'm not prepared to look
into this at the moment (concentrating on using iterators to calculate widths)
but the door is open for experimentation and parallel changes.  (go for it!)
