Unless I am missing something that already exists for this in the block.tpl.php , I think that there should be the ability to column size directly the the main block wrapper. If I have more than one block in a region and I want them to line up in a row (Ex.
<div class="columns seven block-block1"></div><div class="columns five block-block2"></div>) there is no way to add that.
Ideally for usability, it would be best to be able to set that when creating a block, right in the interface.
