If you did that, then you could also completely avoid having the
fixed-height mode by estimating the total height based on the initial
sampling, then adjusting the scrollbar as needed. If the distribution
of heights is reasonable, then the initial guess will be close to
the correct one. In the common case where all rows have the same size,
the initial guess would be exact.

This is particularly appealing since programmers in general don't have
the information to answer the question "is this tree fixed height",
because the answer depends on what fonts are installed and what text
is actually in the tree.
