Now, my understanding of Delphi compatibility is that clientwidth should
be the internal width of the window, and WIDTH should NOT and would
dynamically change if a user changes window border sizes.  If we go with
clientwidth being equal to form.width then aren't we breaking Delphi
compatibility in Winblows?  We couldn't do that in GTK because GTK can't
find out how wide a window border is was my understanding.

It's been a while since I worried about that in Delphi though, so
perhaps I have it backwards.

One of these days I've gotta reboot into Windows (if I can remember how)
and try out Lazarus in Win32 just to see how it's going.
