So they are - my mistake.

I wonder if this is an arbitrary figure?

I don't think this would be very useful for most applets (clocks would 
become too small to read, etc).

I think an option to change the size of launchers might be more useful 
than an option which shrank (?) all launchers and applets. Applets can 
incorporate an option to change their height if they think it's useful 
(I think the mini-commander does this).
