The doc is correct. You still set the width to null to have a view
take on its 'natural' width.
[There may have been some confusion in trunk where we declared width
to be Number when first porting to swf9. In JS2, you are supposed to
be able to declare something Number? and permit null as a value, but
swf9 seems not to implement that, so we had to remove the declaration.]
