I quote Carl's words:

"So offset applies to the *estimated* position, and then the spacing engine
works on the offset+estimated postion and ends up putting things where it
thinks they belong"

I checked that with the examples made before and it seems absolutely true.

Then: you have to offset an estimated position. How could you do that if
you don't know this estimated position?
