Special-casing it was not what I had in mind.

It all boils down to calculating the size of the margins in pixels.
The key to that is window_box_width, which uses
WINDOW_FRAME_COLUMN_WIDTH to convert columns into pixels, and
WINDOW_FRAME_COLUMN_WIDTH returns the "canonical" width of a column,
which is an average width of the default face's font.

So all it takes is to make that calculation aware of face remapping,
images displayed in the margin, etc.
