That part happens already - 'height' and its min/max variants already
apply to <select multiple>.  You just need the auto-sizing part.

This actually probably *is* an HTML issue, since the rendering of
<select> is still undefined in CSS.  The <select multiple> determines
its own size automatically from its sizes='' attribute, defaulting to
"the size of 4 items", so I think you'd need to add an HTML value like
sizes="auto" to mean "the size of however many items I have".
