I once tried to set a custom height for the list view items but came across a 
bunch of problems and ditched the idea again. I could make use of it in parts 
of Kopete if it's possible though. Downside is that you can't use widgets 
there and have to do your own painting code. Child widgets would have been 
far more useful.
