Sorry to insist on this, but Emacs has also these two keybindings:

  C-x {  shrink-window-horizontally
  C-x }  enlarge-window-horizontally

I find it weird to have a keybinding for `shrink-window-horizontally'
and not for `shrink-window', which is more fundamental.  Especially
because the default split (C-x 2) is horizontal, thus calling for 
vertical resizing.
