As explained earlier, I still keep character-size increments for window
based resizing.  When resizing a window combination I give all windows
but at most one a multiple of the default character size.

We have three use cases: Requests from tiling WMs, maximization requests
which leave the taskbar visible and are triggered, for example, when the
taskbar gets resized or auto-hidden, and fullscreen requests which ask
for hiding everything else.  IIUC the most common ones are maximization
