Not trivial in what way?

That'd probably be more efficient, but some cursory testing seems to
indicate that putting a min-width on every char in a pretty big buffer
works fine.

It depends on the resolution.  Here's the same sentence without and with
a min-width on each char that's one pixel wider than the natural width:

Looks fine here, but this is a 320PPI display.  For low resolutions,
doing this sort of thing is probably not recommended.
