There are many ways to accomplish this, but in the context of Simple XML, we can embed CSS to hide padding panels that reduce the width of other panels:

 

<dashboard>
  <label>Panel Width</label>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count="WAN"</query>
        </search>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel1"/>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel2"/>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel3"/>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel4"/>
  </row>
  <row>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count="LAN"</query>
        </search>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel>
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel5"/>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel6"/>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel7"/>
    <panel id="hiddenpanel8"/>
  </row>
  <row id="hiddenrow">
    <html>
      <style>
        [id*="hidden"] {
          visibility: hidden;
        }
      </style>
    </html>      
  </row>
</dashboard>

<dashboard>
  <label>Panel Width</label>
  <row>
    <panel id="resizepanel1">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count="WAN"</query>
        </search>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="resizepanel2">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="resizepanel3">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="resizepanel4">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
  </row>
  <row>
    <panel id="resizepanel5">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count="LAN"</query>
        </search>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="resizepanel6">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="resizepanel7">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
    <panel id="resizepanel8">
      <single>
        <search>
          <query>| stats count 
| eval count=100</query>
        </search>
        <option name="unit">%</option>
      </single>
    </panel>
  </row>
  <row id="hiddenrow">
    <html>
      <style>
        #hiddenrow {
          visibility: hidden;
        }
        [id*="resizepanel"] {
          width: 10% !important;
        }
      </style>
    </html>      
  </row>
</dashboard>

 

But the results aren't always perfect:
