I strongly support this, since I have a lot of files with side-by-side 
content.  The first question is of course how does the org source look 
like.  In my case, I have simply separated the columns by a <tab> character 
and set the tab-width to a sensible value for nice on-screen display.  These 
are 'text' and 'translation of that text' side-by-side, sometimes 
interrupted by section headers, notes and so on.  Therefore I end up with 
multiple 'tables', which will need to have the same width throughout the 
document.  Therefore for this use-case, I would like to see a global setting 
for the relative width of these columns.

All the best,

Christian
