   I sometimes need the exact size.

Then I suggest that you clean up your patch, follow the GNU Coding
Standard and make a nice ChangeLog entry (you can read about the
format of those in the GNU Coding Standard) and post the patch here.
Who knows, maybe it will be included.

   Real Programmers consider "what you see is what you get" to be just as
   bad a concept in Text Editors as it is in women. No, the Real Programmer
   wants a "you asked for it, you got it" text editor -- complicated,
   cryptic, powerful, unforgiving, dangerous.
