How to increase window title bar size in KDE 4 ?

Hi everyone.
I have just installed and been running openSUSE 11.2 for a few days thus I am still doing customization.
The problem is the window title bar feel too small for me. I think its default size is the smallest one among window's component. Yet I can't find and figure out where to customize this factor using default configuration tool. And, after a relative time googling, I still can't find this, a seemed-to-be trivial one.
Does anybody know how to do this ? How to increase (or change, in general) the size of window title bar in KDE 4. I would prefer if it's just some configuration somewhere but if there's nothing at all, I won't hesitate using a third-party utility.
Please help me.
Btw, my system settings is almost in "default" status: Oxygen window decoration and Oxygen style. Changing the title bar's font size won't do. It just enlarge the font only, not the title bar itself. I'm running on 1280x1024.
Thanks for reading.

As far as my experience with KDE3/4 there is no GUI config option for that.
It might be possible under the covers, or heaven forbid, recompiling. But other than that, I don't think you can.

Maybe a theme might support this....

Ah, that is disappointing really. I also think it's quite possible just using other themes. But Oxygen is fine for me. Maybe trying Compiz/Beryl will do... Ok, I'll bear the small size.
Anyway, thanks for your reply.
