I had that feature in jMax in 2001 and I had to leave it behind when I 
switched to Pd in 2003/2004. However, in jMax, the user-set width applied 
to everything and you can imagine the font trouble when variable-width 
fonts that were automatically picked and rendered in slightly different 
ways would take a little bit more than the user-set width of the box and 
then would cause the box to go double-height. So you understand that it 
was a relief to not have that feature anymore, but however, I would be 
very pleased to have it back IF it were OPTIONAL.
