I profoundly dislike this option.  In particular, I don't understand why
a window should be resized only if it's adjacent to the selected one.
Moreover, the adjacency test is inherently wrong for slightly more
complex window layouts.  And, if there are other windows in the same
combination, some of these might shrink or grow instead of the selected

I'd rather make this variable obsolete instead.  It's a relict from a
time when a frame used to contain at most two windows ...
