Besides using mouse you can also resize from keyboard if you really want
to. I like in DWM very much how I can resize from keyboard :) so I mapped
these commands in WMII as well:

            xwrite /view/sel/sel/geom +0 +0 -10 +0;;
            xwrite /view/sel/sel/geom +0 +0 +10 +0;;
            xwrite /view/sel/sel/geom +0 +0 +0 -10;;
            xwrite /view/sel/sel/geom +0 +0 +0 +10;;

Now I can resize from keyboard in WMII as well :) It has some quirks, in
particular it won't work if you try it on the rightmost column, also it only
works nice for the first window in a column, but it still beats mouse for
me :)
