No, it doesn't.  I meant the number of lines of the default face.

Only 3, not 4.

In the sense that we have been discussing for the last several
months.  I don't think I need to repeat all that.

If we agree, we don't have to talk about this aspect any more.

In simple.el.  If you want to move it to window.el, I won't mind.

It measures in units of the default-face lines, so it doesn't care
about where in the buffer are you.

No, line sizes.
