The reason is explained in the comments.  In a nutshell, it's a cheaty
solution for a problem for which I couldn't find a better one.  If I
ever will, the extra space will go away.  (I'm surprised that someone
could be sensitive to one less column with today's large screens,
especially after giving up several columns for the numbers.)
