Well, actually, this isn't entirely true. I advocated for another
*preference* that acted upon *lines*. What I got was a *modifier*
(Shift) that allowed one to override the number of rows down to one.

it's certainly an improvement. At present, the [update][1] has not yet
been merged upstream. Maybe it will be coming in Eoan?
