I don't think that's the same thing. I think that's talking about
widgets whose width will increase when their height increases.

I'm talking about a container that might have widgets arranged like

child1 child4 child7
child2 child5
child3 chidl6

but when the container is made less high, they will be arranged like

child1 child3 child5 child7
child2 chidl4 child6

Also, the minimum height would therefore be constrainted by the total
child widget height and the number of columns in the container.
