We needed this functionality in our 1.3.6 installation, and have implemented something similar but a little simpler than the proposed feature in this issue report; a patch is attached if this is of any interest as an interim measure until the feature is complete.

The patch adds an option to the Align tab so that, when aligning item edges together, one can choose whether to do the alignment by moving both edges of the object (the current method) or by leaving the other edge fixed (resizing the object instead of moving it).

Thus one can set a group of vertically arranged objects to be the same width by choosing the "align by resizing" option then simply clicking the align-left and align-right buttons.

It doesn't help much the case where one wants to equalize the width of horizontally arranged objects, since after doing this the objects will be all on top of one another, but one could then re-distribute them relative to the page using the "distribute" tab.

(We chose to implement resizing in the scenario where we need to use it most, and couldn't wait until the feature comes out in 1.3.5.)
