As already mentioned in
I'd like to get rid of the Element width (and height)
entries in the standard properties dialogs again.
IMHO they are causing more harm than good.


It is very useful for anyone doing modelling of things with a physical
size.  I have had a use for it already.  I know of one problem only they
have, namely that if you change the size of the object while the
properties dialog is open, it doesn't update.  Do you see any other kind
of harm in having them?

Yes, please follow the give bug links:
- the aspect ratio property is not respectzed

In general, limits set by the object are not respected.  This is because
they usually live in the move_handle functions, which are not called
here.  That will be a little tricky to do right.  If I can't come up
with a good solution, I will remove the setters again.

I have the good solution, namely to let objects have a check_constraints
function, but it's too big to add during release.  It will be foremost
on my plate for next iteration, so width/height gets turned off for now.
