:in conclusion, I suggest:
:1) re-enabling the annoying top warning message, and perhaps choosing
:    a sensible default to prevent the annoying warning on a handy-dandy
:    default punched-card sized 80x24 display
:this would mean changing DEFAULT_TOPN in /usr/src/usr.bin/top/config.h
:to 17. (24 - 7 for the 'header' stuff)
:- Chris

    I don't see any reason to re-enable the annoying top warning message.

    We could just set DEFAULT_TOPN to something big, too, like 100, but
    it might make more sense to simply size it to the number of rows on
    the terminal.  I dunno.
