in this case, `column' is not in character units, but a small integer,
like 1, 2, 3.  for single-func approach (which is cleanest, IMHO), you
can put column-specific info that cannot be gleaned from the interactive
spec into a text property under a known-agreed-upon property name.  thus
the event carries location info and the location carries all the rest.
