Yes, that would indeed be needed. Probably also import/export from/to
Excel needs new row-height calculation, as they specify row height in
fractions of font height, IIRC.

I'm not sure we want to keep the new algorithm as default, given that
there are probably many areas in several applications to be adapted to
the new behavior. Maybe best we make that an option until necessary
changes are done. Opinions?
