I don't know the answer, perhaps Andreas could explain his perspective
on this.

Maybe this means what is now run_window_configuration_change_hook
should be divided into 2 parts: one that only reacts to changes in
dimensions, the other that reacts to new windows and changes in
window-buffer?  The former will want to run at the end of redisplay,
the latter at the beginning, I think.

I'm not sure I understand why, perhaps because I don't have a clear
idea what you mean by "continuing with overlays".  Please tell more.

What are the disadvantages of doing that?
