Please don't.  I find it a complete abomination that MS Windows'
scrollbars snap back if you accidentally skid off sideways while
dragging (dragging exactly vertically is rather hard).

Having this operation resize the windows would be even worse.  I don't
want to be forced into having to steady my hand horizontally when doing
a vertical operation.

The annoyance possibly would be less if the larger of the drag offsets
(X or Y) would win out, but that means that the drag mode might jump
from one to the other with a somewhat jarring effect.
