Is possible.

I would like keep the options open for a BIGCHAR. scrollable if you ask
me. That would be a nice thing to have. If we say no large widgets we
can't have bigchar or bigscrollers anymore. I would like to keep that

Yes, but isn't it a bit ugly ? I mean EITHER you _do_ promilles and the
lot, OR you _don't_. This calculation is somewhere in between. Should we
not go for a float or something to indicate the barlength in chars ? (And
then of course no promilles) Or an int indicating the fraction of the
last char ?

OK no bignums (or future bigchars) in a frame sounds acceptable.
