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?
