I can do that for `enlarge-window' (and do a corresponding thing for
`shrink-window').  I can do that for the lower level function
`resize-window' (aka `window-resize') as well but wouldn't we rather
like to catch a failure here?  Also what about an attempt to enlarge or
shrink the root window of a frame?  Should we avoid signalling an error
here too?

I meant the functionality of `adjust-window-trailing-edge'.  Before that
change mouse dragging an edge could delete windows and after that change
