That's just psychological :-) You scroll all the time, with every 
website and perhaps even with most mails you read. Seriously, vertical 
scrolling is much less an issue then lack of white space.

If there is such a large group to warrant different stylesheets then 
I'll seriously reconsider the default output. If you turn out to be a 
minority, it's probably better to use something like a user stylesheet 
which I've previously mentioned. Only two CSS lines would need to be 
overruled, so it's really simple.
