Hm. Just because you have to actually do the resizing and that affects
other windows and a decision has to be made how?

Do we really have good ways to easily solve this? Maybe I am missing
something? Perhaps you have some specific suggestion for how to do
this? Which functions do you think supply the needed features?

One little detail of course: It should not delete other windows. (If
you allow it do delete other windows there are much simpler
implementations than the one I am suggesting. Much simpler.)
