Resizable stack with a custom shape (was: Re: Transparent stacks...)

I know how to make a stack without decorations resizable. I do not know how 
to make a stack with a custom window shape resizable. AFAIK, the custom 
shape is dependent upon a bitmap template.

If there is a way to create "rounded corners" without a windowshape that 
also would be welcome information.

By the way, I downloaded the stack you referenced and sure enough it does 
not address my question.

You have just to script resizing by yourself :-)
The "Managing Resizing" tutorial might help you:
Especially the "Tips and tricks" tab that shows how to make a stack
without decorations resizable.
You will find an example stack and all needed scripts.

You will access this tutorial through "Tutorials Picker" a free
plugin that interfaces with the So Smart Software website in order to
display all available tutorials stacks directly from the web.
You will find it by going to
Revolution/Plugins or Tutorials section.
