Fair enough. I was trying to make the most of the available space to
display content. But that space is small (less than a line/column), so
that wasting it in partial lines/columns doesn't worth it.
But the actual situation (in fullscreen/maximized mode, put all
remnant space at the bottom) doesn't look fine either.
