Would it help if the minimum column width was just enforced in the
algorithm, and not exposed as a property?  We can always make a
property to control it later, but for now, just saying that columns
aren't allowed to shrink below 5em or something would ensure that some
content always gets shown, and may reduce the presence of
singularities in the algorithm.
