Then it should have a sizeHint that is "the size of the full text", but limited to
a reasonable value so that the dialog isn't bigger than the screen.
(and a minimumSizeHint that is "the size of the squeezed text", or even "the size
of the text when squeezed the most", actually).

After all that definition of the sizeHint is what we want, no? 
To squeeze the text only so that it fits into the screen, not to squeeze it as much as possible...
