I don't care what actually *does* the list spacing/expanding. To me
the important part is that it's configurable from within Rockbox,
rather than being something only configurable via .cfg file (like many
theme options).

Because touchscreen devices can differ not only in physical count of
pixels, but also in DPI and physical size, a theme can appear
different on several screens that would seem compatible with it. Then
you may need or want different list spacings just to use Rockbox even
if the rest of the theme is mostly acceptable. So wherever the spacing
code is implemented, as a feature, while it has a visual effect on
Rockbox I think there's a very valid argument that fundamentally it's
a usability feature in that it directly affects the ability of a user
to be able to use the software.
