Right, the current mix of form, control and client sizes is annoying. 
When the form borders are hard to determine, because they are not 
handled by the widgetset, but instead are handled by the window manager, 
then *every* widgetset should allow to specify the client size, and the 
window manager would add whatever window borders are configured.
