Height of a group is limited to 32767 (Int16)?

It appears that the maximum height of a LC group is 32767 pixels. Presumably
LC uses an Int16 data type when drawing? I am using a template-based
datagrid on iOS with a native scroller (Monte's mergDataGridScroller) to
display complex lists and find that the number of items in such a list is
limited to a few hundred items before the maximum group height is reached,
at which point the datagrid disappears. This occurs in LC 8.1.2 (and
earlier) and is a major limitation when trying to create mobile apps that
need to scroll large lists. Now that iOS apps are 64 bit, can we expect this
limitation to go anytime soon?
