Hi everyone,
We resolved on switching 'flex-basis: auto' back to its original definition
and adding a new keyword to explicitly request the default automagic.
But, we didn't actually close on what that new keyword would be.

Candidates thus far are
  * content
  * content-size
  * auto-content
  * <insert-your-suggestion-here>

Given the existence of min-content, max-content, and fit-content,
(which don't have a -size suffix), I'm somewhat disinclined to go with
content-size. Otherwise, the questions are

   a) Has anyone implemented this new keyword yet? If so, as what keyword?
   b) Other opinions on what the keyword should be?
