If I understand the source correctly, then this still does not support
resolution-independent settings.

That is, I can say I want a window N pixels wide, but I can't say I want
a window 1/2 of the screen width and have it work on different screens.

Of course, I can do "wmctrl -d" and munge the output...  Yeah, that
might be workable.  But still, OpenBox natively provides a method to
resize windows, it just does not support the width/height computation.
