OK, it's clear.  For you, "The only way the user says she no longer wants a
maximized frame" is to explicitly unmaximize OR to explicitly change the frame

Where we disagree is apparently in what it means to "explicitly" make such

Changing the frame dimensions is the normal, documented, always-has-been
behavior of `set-frame-font' with no non-nil optional arguments.  That's pretty
explicit: such a call _explicitly_ changes the frame dimensions, since that is
what `set-frame-font' is documented to do.

What makes `modify-frame-parameters' changing the frame dimensions different in
your eyes from `set-frame-font' changing the frame dimensions?  They are equally

I suppose you could argue that though the intention to change the size is
explicit in the call to `set-frame-font', the new dimensions do not appear
separately and explicitly.  They are represented by the font size (which of
course _is_ explicit).

That's rather like saying that coordinates are explicit only if they are
cartesian and not polar.  But at least I grant you that there is some
(unimportant IMO) difference between the _representation_ of the

Anyway, we apparently understand each other and our disagreement now, which is
better than misunderstanding.
