'window-configuration-change-hook' is a great mess and is not
display-related.  What users really need IMO is a single hook say
'window-state-change-functions' that we'd call in redisplay_internal
in lieu of 'window-size-change-functions'.  We would run it if
something in the state of a frame's root window changed (including
size changes, changes of the windows' start positions and the selected
window) and additionally provide a list of the differences in the
frame's previous window state and the one redisplay is about to use.
But such a change would be incompatible and the hook would
consequently have to be run in parallel with our present hooks.
