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

The only way to get a window with rounded corners within Rev, as far  
as I know, is to set its windowShape to an appropriate png.
Sure you can make it resizable using the scripts in the tutorial I  
But you will come up against two issues:
1. When resizing the png, rounded corners will be proportionally  
2. When setting repeatedly the windowShape it will work perfectly on  
Win 32 but will not provide acceptable results on a Mac.
