The second one is available on my newsserver, the first one is not.

Well, getting the width of a character can probably easily be done (on 
X11 based systems) by accessing the XFontStruct structure with a small 
C module. More powerful, though, would be something like compute-motion 
that works with pixels instead of lines and columns.

Maybe I'll try out that XFontStruct thing just for fun, but probably not 
too soon.
