Done so in revno 109136.

While testing I noticed that repeatedly doing

   M-: (split-window-sensibly) RET

in a fullscreen emacs on a widescreen display with just one window
didn't create something like

  |          |           |
  |          |           |
  +----------+           |
  |          |           |
  |          |           |

but it won't split any further after

  |          |           |
  |          |           |
  |          |           |
  |          |           |
  |          |           |

because `split-height-threshold' is set to 80 lines by default.  Is that
default reasonable and intended?  IMO, something like 20 lines would
make more sense...

With my quite big 24" display, a common font size, and no menu or tool
bars, I have at most 75 lines in a window in a maximized emacs.  This
large value basically forbids "sensible" vertical splits for almost
