X11 on OS X does basically that...

...and it has basically that problem. I've never seen an app where the
resize grip *completely* obscured something (scrollbar buttons are big
enough to poke out around the grip), but it looks pretty ugly anyway...
I think Apple just decided to not care since it's just X11, not their
real UI. That argument won't work for us though.

And having a "turn off resize grip" hint seems like an odd solution...
if the application is going to be aware of the existence of window
grips, then it should just fix the window layout to make room for one.
