If a font has too much space between the lines (lines where no
character has pixels), then the font is badly created.

And to add additional lines of space between two lines of text uses
more space on the display.

So at least for me the ability to set a line spacing is unnecessary
and looks like a workaround for bad fonts to me..

Bye, Uwe.
