Okay, I see this now.

(I'm not sure how great it would be if applications started using this,
they would probably choose different locations and images for the
grips, making the user interface inconsistent. But I guess it's better
than them implementing the whole move/resize thing themselves, like
e.g. most mp3 players seem to do)

I'm not sure how serious I was about this, I can't see any uses for it
