Re: Window resizing - rebind C-x - to shrink-window?

I update my suggestion:

  C-x _ shrink-window
  C-x - shrink-window-if-larger-than-buffer
  C-x ^ enlarge-window

AFAIK C-x _ is currently free.  Then we would keep the olds bindings for
`shrink-window-if-larger-than-buffer' and `enlarge-window' but we would
also have a key for `shrink-window', which sounds an improvement to me.

Idea?
