Hmm, could i write a feature-request for this? ;-)

Could be needed by tools like ECB which uses tree-buffers. ECB currently does
a very smart recentering of a tree-buffer, so always a maximum of useful
informations are visible, e.g. as many subnodes as possible if a node is
expanded. ECB can currently use `count-screen-lines' for this and this works
perfect except for some very seldom (or almost pathological ;-) cases....

But nevertheless such a function would help to write the code even better
working perfectly for all cases.
