Distribute between two fixed end objects with equal spacing: Is it possible?

I frequently find myself needing to distribute objects with equal spacing -- while leaving the first and last objects fixed in place.

 

To do this with Distribute Spacing, I need to manually calculate the spacing:

spacing = (total width – sum of objects' widths) / (number of objects – 1)

This is a bit of a pain. Is there any way to do it automatically?

 

Basically, I want to do the equivalent of "justify-content: space-between" (CSS flexbox).

 

If there isn't a built-in way to accomplish this, it seems like there should be -- so, feature request. Maybe there could be a scripting solution?

To answer my own question:

Distribute Spacing does exactly this, as long as you don't select a key object.

That was easy.
