If shrinking is useful, that should be added in a

platform-specific variable.

I find it nice for viewing more lines of code in a window in some
fonts that seem to space fairly generously.  If others like it,
perhaps it could be considered for a future version of emacs, using
the existing line-spacing impl as a starting point.

So, you agree that extending line-spacing is the right direction and
to remove ns-expand-space now?  Otherwise it conflicts/duplicates with
line-spacing with respect to expansion even now.

I feel the bug with support for line-spacing under NS should be fixed ASAP, and that eventually, after 23.1, if people try the ns-expand- space feature under NS and end up liking it / wishing it was present on other platforms, line-spacing might be extended and expand-space removed.

I don't see a benefit to removing the latter right now during pretest, and it would hurt existing users as well as the opportunity for others to try it out and judge whether it is a feature worth having in core emacs. There is no conflict with line-spacing -- the effects can be additive.
