Thanks, I have committed it to trunk.

While testing the patch, I noticed another issue with the same sample file, however
unrelated to boxes branch or glyph scaling. When using right alignment on the second text
frame, the one with two columns, the last line of each paragraph is not correctly aligned,
with some unwanted space after the dot. This apparently happens when the paragraph ends
with one or several spaces, which is most likely a case of user error. Those additional
spaces should probably get the ScLayout_SuppressSpace flag.
