IMHO this should be the users choice if he/she wants to side-panel
(or top-panal for layouts of type top) of the ECB-windows being fixed
when resizing the ECB-frame.

In general i agree with you concerning using advices, but IMO currently
they are still necessary if one wants to build something like ECB on top
of Emacs and give the users the feeling if the edit-windows of ECB are 
the only windows in the frame and allow all features users are used to 
use (e.g. deciding if they want windows fixed or not...)

Until we have a robust and general mechanism to exclude special windows
from being taken into account by fnctions like deleting, balancing windows
etc.... (as i described in my previous posting) ECB will use advices as
best possible workaround. The advices of ECB are always safe because they
are savely only active when ECB is active...
