Well, how about explaining why this variable was introduced, for
starters?  What problem(s) did its introduction try to solve?

Sorry, I don't get the drift.  What do you mean by "resizing W"? how
can one resize "a vertical combination" of 2 or 3 windows, which AFAIU
is just a node in the window tree, not a live window that is displayed
on a frame?  I mean, I can resize W1, W2, or W3, but how do I resize
their combination?
