For some definition of logical that is certainly an interesting idea. It  
would however completely break the getter/setter symmetry of "px". I  
personally value that a little higher.

Whatever API we come up with for calc() could potentially address this  
case though. Including something like taking the current value and  
performing some kind of operation on it.
