That sounds like a good idea.

It would mean a bit more reworking of existing code, since the places
I've fixed all calculate various heights and then use shrink-window or
something, but I think it would probably be an improvement, since most
of them simply contain code to do exactly that.

The only problem I can think of offhand is the name -- currently all
places that deal with `window-height's *include* the mode-line in the
height, so I think having a function called `set-window-height' that
uses a different metric would be confusing.

How about `set-window-text-height'?
