No reason is mentioned in the initial commit
(edd5c33923a574a278a74d56ca770f6072e0ffc6), the referenced bug (Bug
65198 - Ability to show a grid) or the manual
(http://docs.gimp.org/en/gimp-image-configure-grid.html). I don't see
a good reason either, it just seems silly. So feel free to have only
one row when you port to GimpUnitEntry.
