In some situations, user wants to avoid labeling for very small features even if there are no label position conflicts.

The attached patch adds the capability of suppressing labeling for small features. The user specifies a minimum size in mm and pallabeling.cpp checks the length / area of a features vs. the minimum value (or the square of the minimum value for polygons) before sending the label to pal.
