I was thinking maybe the linespace should default to the current
fontsize plus a preset interline spacing.  For example when I
resize text from 10 to 24 points the text on succeeding lines
overlaps.  The spacing isn't automatically adjusted to something
like 27 points: font size (24) + interline spacing (3 pts).
