point is if it only work "most of the time" then it is not possible to 
use it to do manipulations in lua and turn back a result to TeX for 
further processing as on the TeX level 1sp difference may throw you off

And I really don't see how to use tex.sp here the result of 
node.dimensions appears to be already in sp (whole numbers) the only 
issue is that it is off by a few ...
