Good point. Why do we have 2 ways of resizing: (1) the traditional
WIMP way of putting your cursor on the client border and dragging and
(2) pressing grabmod key and right clicking on a client (which is much
more user-friendly IMHO because the entire client acts as the target
of the click+drag, rather than the tiny 1-pixel client border)?

Agreed. I also make the same mistake sometimes.

Maybe we can delete resizing method #1 from the wmii source code and
have one less annoying feature and less LOC to boot? Two birds for
one stone. :-)
