Thanks. If you make a package for this, it might be good to support a  
more complete set of the various fixed-width "space" characters from  
the U+200x row; most of these are defined in relation to an em, so it  
would be easy to turn them into \kern amounts (or \hskip if some of  
them should be flexible).

One question to think about is what they should do if they occur in  
vertical mode; should they act like "printable" characters,  
automatically starting a paragraph, or should they act like spaces and  
simply disappear?
