I don't the space is necessary -- Kim's recent changes should do that in a
better way -- but I presume the use of the fixed-width font is so that the
single-letter headers for the first three `columns' _exactly_ line up with
the corresponding text. Those headers are already kind of cryptic, so that
is important for anyone that uses a variable-pitch header face (which is not
The current solution is kind of bad be because the `fixed-pitch' face is
often jarringly different from the default face, but in practice it's
probably good enough for now.
For future releases I intend to add `attribute filtered' face-inheritance
(something which Stefan has also mentioned), which should make it easer to
get a face that just inherits the default face's font/size without screwing
up other attributes.
Run away! Run away!
