Not necessarily: it could be done by instructing the window-manager
beforehand about the applicable resizing limits.  I've often found
windows that cannot be resized below some threshold (often dialog
windows).  Try it with `evolution', for example: I can't make it
narrower than 879 pixels.

With window-managers that do "opaque resizing" (pretty much standard
nowadays), that can be very problematic.
