When reading articles, the upper part of the screen is showing a list of articles (from, subject, lines, etc)
for the current group. This list is resizable in length though one cannot save this resized window.

What I would like to be added is a setting in the config file which, if unset (say, it is set to "0"), will cause
slrn to determine the number of articles based on the same routine as it does now. However, the user
should be able to change to this setting to a positive number and which slrn will take for the number of
lines used to show articles in a group when reading articles.

    This can easily be done with a macro. E.g., if you want the
    upper part of the screen to display 8 articles, use

    define resize_screen_hook ()
    {
    set_article_window_size (SCREEN_HEIGHT-12);
    }

    Explanation: This gives the article pager SCREEN_HEIGHT-12
    lines; four lines are used by status bars, so 8 remain for
    the overview window.
