Well, that part isn't exactly correct. Column width is currently based 
on placement of tab stops. However, the current implementation will 
extend the final tab stop almost infinitely, and those columns will be 
the same size as the last one which was set.

As Chipp mentioned, many of these issues can (more or less) be resolved 
programatically. Several of them cant. Bug #670 is a feature request 
aimed at getting "actual" data grids implemented as a new kind of 
control, which would inherently behave the way a data grid should, 
without a whole bunch of workarounds through custom code.
