Re: lack of :extend-width arg to clim:formatting-table

1. What about clim:formatting-item-list which IS documented as
exhibiting the above behavior? Apparently there was thought invested
in this behavior for clim as well!
2. In addition, clim:formatting-item-list DOESN'T WORK in the above
case although it is documented to work. (I guess not enough thought
was invested, after all!)
This behavior was put into CLIM:FORMATTING-ITEM-LIST for the sole
purpose of making command menus look nice. It does work, but you need
to supply :NO-INITIAL-SPACING NIL (gee, that's obvious).
3. Is the method I specify above (using a helper stream and bounding
rectangle) a reasonable approach if I don't want to hack the
clim:formatting-table code at the moment?
I would find it easier to extend CLIM:TABLE-FORMATTING, but of course I
am familiar with the code. You might find it easier, too, but your
approach is not unreasonable if you are willing to pay the performance
