yes. When you want to be limited to screen size, simply use the
Maximize Window.

IMO shouldn't

yes :) It should always unset this flag.

The same as when resizing a window. Try to resize some window to
minimal size and you will see that different windows have different
minimal sizes. halve-window-size should simply respect that.

What I'm telling is that: double/halve window size always unsets
maximize flag, and totally ignores screen size. By this way the
behaviour will never be unexpected. To get some other, more complex
behaviour just use maximize, growpack, whatever.

Also it would be useful to have:
