Hm, `advance-override` would only work reasonably for monospace fonts, right? On a variable-width font, it would set the advance for all characters to the override value, effectively turning it into monospace, which seems bad.

(Solving the "fallback screws up your monospace grid" problem is important on its own, of course, but being able to solve the "tweak a fallback font so that it ends up very close to the primary font" for variable-widths would also be great.)
