This only works with single chars right?

Suppose I wanted to implement something like this for my special case.
Would I subclass Padding and overwrite padding_values ?

I think another possible solution for my case would be if once could
tell Columns that if an element has fixed length and doesn't fit onto the screen
then instead of leaving it out display only a prefix. At least for Text widgets
that would make sense..
