Indeed that is what we need. Just one small (optical) addition: In the 
configuration dialog we have the labels "small", "medium" and "wide". The 
problem is that "medium" is not really a window decoration which you would 
call medium sized. Is it possible to add a fourth label "extra wide"?

We are designing for both of them. Regarding the bevel size I would suggest to 
modify its size proportional to the width of the decoration.
