Localized status messages too big for window

Description

This is hrev40513.

The area for status messages beside the logo of the Installer window can be too small for localized messages. See:

Screeshot: Bottom part of German status message is cut off.

Can the LayoutKit check for the longest localized string and create a wide enough Installer window from the start?

What's missing is BTextView::HasHeightForWidth() and BTextView::GetHeightForWidth() when not editable, not a scrollview's target but resizable.

The LayoutKit will then automatically adjust to fit both logo and the whole status text. Dynamically. But it will also do that when the status text becomes smaller enough to reduce the height, which is not the best visual effect one would want here.

This might have been fixed in hrev42022 (see #5882).
