Sorry, bad wording.  I mean that the user wants to position the glyph
at a non-integer x value, and the auto-hinter tries to `warp' the
glyph horizontally so that it still gets aligned to the grid.

Ah, so fractional advance widths? Aren't these conceptually incompatible with the autohinter method of snapping outer edges to the grid to achieve sharpness? The only thing you could do would be to adjust stem thickness, but the autohinter doesn't do that iirc?
