 I object. I hope the previous messages in the thread have shown that it can 
be a major pain to always get it right, if it's actually possible at all. 
KWin simply cannot calculate it, it can only estimate. Even Havoc said in one 
message that the Metacity patch (which is the reference implementation for 
this) is not guaranteed to get it right. And I said already, I'd actually 
prefer if the wording stressed more the fact that it can be just a guess.
