I'll be looking at some of the other issues... however the answer to
what size to use is simple.
Whatever the user wants.
The specific size is first drawn from the theme. The specific
"dynamic" size we pick is further affected by an option.
So, one of the things I do in testing things is switch to the "large
print" theme. This pops sizes up very much.
