It has never been possible to resize the managed area with
mouse, thus this can't be broken at all. Client resizals work
quite well, dunno why you mean this is broken?

I can agree once we allow border based resizals, that vertical
borders might affect the colums and horizontal borders the
clients in managed mode. But if we do so, we should drop the
current way completely. I don't see the need having several ways
of resizing things, it confuses the concept and people to much.
There should always be one and only one way to do something.

I don't think we need a special representation of colums if we
define dragging vertical borders affects the column, horizontal
borders affects the client. Exception: floating/sticky layers.
