Ah, I see.

I'm still not quite sure what the use case is, which perhaps explains
why it's not used.  (Well, along with it not working.  😀)

If you say (propertize "😀foo" '(space :relative-width 1)) then it's
supposed to make a space that's two normal characters wide?  (Since 😀
has a char-width of 2.)  Hm...  Well, OK, I can vaguely see how that
might be useful, but it seems like it would be as easy to just say

(propertize "😀foo" `(space :width ,(char-width ?😀)))

wouldn't it?
