I agree that greedy algorithm is not great, and that proportional is nicer for webdevs.

If we are going to grow proportionally, there are few decisions to be made:

- how do we limit total %ge to 100%?. Columns have a step where they add all column percentages until 100%, then zero out anything over 100%. I think we should do the same for rows.

- cells grow proportionally to what? Existing size, or desired percentage? My suggestion is desired percentage.
