Actually, we already have variable width support. Add the define LCD_PROPFONTS to your firmware/Makefile and you get it. I'd say 95% of everything works fine without special position handling. We really mostly use character positions Y position, not X.

Variable width is a major benifit, since it allows more information on screen. I definitely think your code should support it.
