What I mean is that maybe you have more freedom there when you do this
internally. Can't you for example calculate the sizes going down the
tree before actually applying them to the windows? Can't you this way
calculate all the sizes before applying them? You may then of course
have to store them node by node by node, but there will be no
surprises when you apply them, or?
