Followup:  Okay, alt+middleclick+drag allows you to resize in
eight directions (NW N NE W E SW S SE) by clicking pretty
much anywhere in the window.  What I'm looking for, though,
is for leftclick+drag on an edge to resize (N W E S) while
leftclick elsewhere behaves normally.  (I tried binding Frame +
Left = Resize, but that catches clicks that it shouldn't, e.g.
clicks on the Close button.)

If there's a way to implement this by editing rc.xml, then I'd
appreciate some pointers.
