Well that would certainly be a possibility, but cuts the month and year in two 
halves, and looks kinda odd too... overall, we had some attempts on the 
usability list, and this one seemed the most sensible of those.

That's obviously a shortcoming of KDateTable's sizeHint(), which is a separate 
issue. Seems like I should fix that as well, but the patch is already large 
enough - I'd like to get this done without adding even more stuff right now.
I promise to deal with that issue, though.
