Can we do better with long titles text getting cut off?

There are a bunch of places where there's reserved only a single line of text for a title and will cut it off with ... when it runs out of room.  It would be great if the UI were dynamic enough in some places where it makes sense to allow flowing to two or more lines. In cases where there's a fixed amount of space (thinking of grid/list views) switch the design to support flowing to two lines of text for titles (reserve space for two always). Or if feasible, have each row be a dynamic height depending on the max number of lines needed in that row for long titles (to a limit). If it was dynamic, the extra space seeming taken up now for the "secondary text" where the year goes could also be crunched up if empty (I have libraries with 10 of 1000's of videos with no year associated in the metadata, so this is wasted space).

In all cases, have some special code for label rendering that tries (to a limit) reduce the text size to allow more to fit and/or start using a condensed font, etc. This size reduction stuff is what I've been used to for years in the SageTV SageMC UI.

Thanks.
