Any such method would have to guess whether, which, and how many,
windows `enlarge-window' is going to delete.  Counting windows and
restoring saved window configurations seems indeed like the most simple
and reliable approach to do that.

Currently, `adjust-window-trailing-edge' has a bug in that it does not
handle fixed-size windows correctly, see bug#3689.  I think we need an
`enlarge-window' function which does not delete windows but is allowed
to resize any other windows that are not fixed-size.
