Thank-you for the patch.

I do not generally consider "everybody else does it like this" to be a good
argument for making/not making any change on its own - although I appreciate
the benefits of consistency.  The sheep mentality irritates me.  The legitimate
issues with Compiz are much more interesting.

With a WM which resizes immediately, Konsole can display the current size of
the window in lines and columns as the size changes for those who wish to know.
 Even with your patch I'm sure the on-screen display would be a lot easier to
work with than resizing the window bit-by-bit.  Doesn't Compiz have an option
to do non-incremental resizing?
