   You will have to implement the feature which looks to me like much 
work which is why it wasn't done that way by default.

   The dialog is included as a binary resource in a DLL, win32ui.pyd. 
You could get the source code, change the dialog resource and recompile 
PythonWin. Another approach would be to manipulate the dialog and 
control sizes after creation in pythonwin/pywin/mfc/
