game worth the candle?) would be
and painstakingly assemble the desired string there while tallying the
_resulting display length_ of anything included, then subtract from
&columns the total thus obtained, and add half of that number of spaces
on each side (or if odd, half of it minus one-half on one side and plus
one-half on the other side). The _return value_ of the function must be
the string to be evaluated by the 'statusline' logic.
The reason a function is used is that the length of any variable part
(such as the pathfilename, or of anything that can be displayed or not,
or that can have variable display length depending on its value) must be
determined on the fly whenever the status line is evaluated. Looks like
rather than %x items in the function result, precomputing the values and
returning a literal string could be more efficient.
Me, I don't see what's wrong with having some stuff (file name, flags,
etc.) on the left side, some other stuff (keymap, line, col,
virtcol-if-different, All/Top/Bot/nn%, etc.) on the right side, and
empty space in the middle.
