revLet: dynamic resizing when browser window resizes

Hi fellow coders, just figured out the way to fix this visual glitch.
Essentially you can't use the geometry manager at this stage - you need to
use a "resizeStack" handler and code it yourself.

Interestingly the following geometry seems to work:

the screenrect: 0,0,1440,900
> the rect of this card: 0,0,868,504
> the rect of this stack: 274,212,1142,716

all though setting the width of the card does not - which would have been a
lot of fun.

Here is the test revLet - which
seems to work well - though there are a few occasional flashes of grey on
FireFox OSX.
