Please refer to my last comment on resizing frames.

Sure, absolutely. But then it's done by intention. Currently it is 
impossible to *not* have any visual cue. That has been my point: Full 
control of what is displayed.

Good point... My first thought was to have at least some kind of border 
visible for frames to be resizable. But you are right, there is not a real 
necessity for that. So the (gap>0) condition may be altered into (gap>=0). 
[I don't believe resizing should be possible if frames overlap... Your 
thoughts?]
