But I suppose the variable-width case *does* need something more like letter-spacing, as Myles indicates. So it'll need to be something different anyway.

But yeah, for the monospace case we definitely do *not* want to act like letter-spacing, we absolutely want to affect the actual advance, so this seems like the right approach for monospace fonts. Just need to make sure the name isn't going to be confusing with whatever we do for variable-width things later. (I think it's probably okay, as the name will probably invoke `letter-spacing` somehow.)
