Please try the latest master, where I implemented that.

Contrary to what I wrote above, I decided to interpret the additional
argument in the same units as the COLS element of the cons cell that
is the first argument.  I think this is better for consistency and
also more convenient, since both values are in the same units and both
can be floats, so no accuracy is lost.

I'd be interested to know if this produces a noticeable speed-up.
