If you had a broader world view, you would have noticed that the Gtk+
toolbar is not part of the client rectangle (the rectangle passed to
change_frame_size), so your point is moot in this context.  What I
wanted are the much simpler macros

#define FRAME_MENU_BAR_HEIGHT(f) (f)->menu_bar_height

#define FRAME_TOOL_BAR_HEIGHT(f) (f)->tool_bar_height

#define FRAME_TOP_MARGIN_HEIGHT(F)                              \

where tool_bar_height would count (in pixels) things like
`tool-bar-button-margin', `tool-bar-button-relief' and
`tool-bar-border', wherever applicable, together with the actual toolbar
and menubar heights (in particular, when these have been wrapped).

If you want for tiled/user specified/maximized/fullscreen mode on Gtk+
change_frame_size to subtract the Gtk+ toolbar size from that of the
screen, then we'd have to first include this size in that of the
rectangle passed to change_frame_size.  This would, however, constitute
a considerable change in the design of the frame/window interface and
would be better done in a separate project.
