I think ideally Emacs would be able to size the margin dynamically, based on the longest margin string in the visible mart of the buffer (maybe use a new value, `auto', for it).

And also display several margin strings together. Maybe use an overlay property, which can indicate the preferred sorting order. And another property to indicate origins, so that strings from one package are always displayed in a neat column.
