Re: [css3-flexbox] Should "align-self:stretch" have any effect on main-size? (i.e. should stretched cross-size be used for establishing main size?)

Any updates on this? :)

BTW: I'm planning on landing some patches in Firefox Nightly to
(optimistically / for now) make a change along the lines of what I
suggested in the first message on this thread, so that we aren't the
only ones doing something that looks silly on this sort of content.

Also, here's a simpler testcase that demonstrates this issue:
http://people.mozilla.org/~dholbert/tests/flexbox/can-stretch-affect-main-size-2.html

(Hopefully this 2nd testcase is easier to reason about than the one I
posted before, since it only uses a single flex container, instead of
nested containers).
