Let me rephrase: Does anyone know of a terminal that instead of
setting resize hints
(that would cause wmii to draw thicker boarders around the window [1])
does not set
any resize hints but instead adds some extra space (in the background
color) on the
right and/or lower sides (or equally on all) (which does not have any
(truncated) text
on it) if the window size set by the window manager does set the
window to a size
which match a multitude of the font being used?

[1] and which is worse often draws a thinner boarder, like in "of size 0px".
