Comment (by humdinger):

 Replying to Meanwhile:
 > And Humdinger, you already saw it coming ("please don't hit me") so I'll
 be soft on you this time,
 "If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could
 possibly imagine. " :)

 Anyway, you could be right about the pulsating thing... :)

 > In fact, thinking about it some more, in Resizing Management there's no
 need at all to accentuate the window. Just like the resizing method using
 the window's lower right hand corner's 'Grippy' area doesn't use and need
 any colour accents.

 While here you are of course totally wrong, you inadvertendly stumbled
 upon a nice idea. :)
 A visualization is indeed needed, because contrary to the familiar resize-
 corner, the keycombo-resizing depends on where your mouse pointer sits in
 the window.

 Now... 'Grippy area'. There's an idea. How about making the moving borders
 'grippy'? The metaphor doesn't fit 100%, because in this case you don't
 actually have to grab the border, as thanks for the keycombo, you can do a
 kind a 'telegrabbing'.[[BR]]
 The implementation is of course much more difficult, I expect, than simple
 changing colours. (Which I haven't had the time yet to play with, Ingo...)
