We're currently working on making our implementation more synchronous (to the end user of WebDriver). We are adding code to verify the content of the page has actually finished resizing before returning. While the browser handles many things asynchronously returning from WebDriver tends to be synchronous. Also if it's not this means web developers just end up sleeping the thread for x amount of time (which is never a good hack).

Subject: Set Window Size

This command is presumably supposed to be sync at the moment. That seems
difficult to implement e.g. if the window manager has an API where you
ask for your window to be resized and it happens (or not) at some later
time. Should this command allow async operation?
