I expect so. I expect the right place to discuss that is the development
mailing list at

Yes, the way I was suggesting this to be implemented is actually equivalent to
setting both "CanShrink" and "CanGrow". Setting it per-row can be done
relatively easily with the current infrastructure. Setting it per-control
requires a deeper redesign of report builder, or a new feature in ODT/Writer.
Report builder now "just" creates an ODT document, and Writer does all the
actual layouting. So per-control would require that *Writer* support the
feature of "autogrow" (which it calls "optimal row height") per cell, and not
only per row.
