Be able to configure the vertical height of an essay question response area

We would like to be able to configure the vertical height of the essay question response area. For human marked tests we may have questions worth a different number of marks (e.g. 2-25). Typically with ContentProducer we would size the gapfill to be proportional to the size of the expected response and number of marks available. The number of marks and size of the response area give the candidate an indication of what is expected in terms of their response. With essay questions the vertical height of the response area is the same in all case and this could make a candidate think they need to write more than is necessary in their response. The configuration could be in terms of a number of lines and if the candidate did write more the scroll bar would appear.
