But that's what I've been asking about the whole time: whether it is 
possible to use instances instead of autoexpanding (ie., linear 
distortion). And my tests led me to believe that this is, in contrast to 
pdftex, *not* possible with luatex, which was corroborated by what you 
said in your last post:

Does this mean that the width axis will be taken into account for expansion?
