Well, I don't have a browser on hand right now that implements the
spread value on box-shadow, so I can't be certain, but what I
described above *appears* to be what's intended by the spec text.
Wherever the shadow would be drawn, increase its boundary by X pixels
first.  Of course, if anyone is currently implementing it they'll be
doing so in a much more efficient way (you can just draw a bigger box,
no need for per-pixel operations).
