I just tried that and I got the error message ! You can't use
\spacefactor' in vertical mode.''

So of course, one must wrap the preamble stuff in \makeatletter and
\makeatother as follows:

\makeatletter
\newenvironment{widecenter}{%
\bgroup
\@flushglue = 0pt plus 1fil minus \textwidth
\begin{center}%
\hfuzz = \maxdimen
\ignorespaces % IMPORTANT: so space after \begin{widecenter} is
gobbled
}{%
\end{center}%
\egroup
}
\makeatother
