Well, I don't know if Ion uses that exact method, I just can't think of
another way to deal with those pixels since xterm can only be resized in
(character width/height-)steps, as mentioned. (which depends on the the
font one has chosen.)
Anyway, the wmii workspace looks a bit 'unclean' in it's current state,
since there will allways be some background pixels visible between the
windows. The (x)terms size should really depend on the window size,
not the other way round.
