The case where the minimum (and probably fixed) sizes don't fit is what
makes this problem hard and is _all_ I care about.  You end up by
deleting a window because it drops below some minimum height and when
that windows is missing you can't keep the fixed-sizeness of another
window ...

The current primitives do a lot of deleting by themselves.  So your tree
carefully laid out in 3) might become a mess in 4).
