That's not true. Users have things like "that fancy letter paper that I
buy at Flammarion", which have weird sizes. They have stickers, envelopes,
and other things on which they want to draw logos.

The paradigm could also encompass screen dimensions, like "16x16 icon" or
"advertisement bar at top of MyStartup.com".

In the future:
We could also add things such as background color of the paper, or a
default letterhead - the user could then place his or her drawing
according to the background color or letterhead.

Why then do we have a per-user unitrc?
