In fact I also seen this sort of resizable combobox-popup.
In was in Visual Basic, or something in an IDE that allow auto-completion.

With high DPI display, I think users set fonts to be bigger.
And if they don't, it's because they like small fonts, so having small 
plain-color rectangles wouldn't harm they, I think (since the size of the 
patches is proportionnal to the font size, big font size for high DPI display 
is sinomym of big color-patches for those displays).

I would want to Keep it Simple.
Both for the user and in the code.
And resizing would be needed to be incremental: if there are 13 patches, the 
resizing should be of +/- 13pixels, to add or remove exactly 1 pixel per 
patch each time and keep them equaly sized.
Or if we allow all patches to don't have the same size it could perhapse lead 
to not-so-beautiful result (or perhapse not).

I think I willn't allow resizing, since there are a lot of other things to 
solve before.
But if a bug is later reported about it I will implement it.

Best regards,
Sébastien Laoût.
