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

Bill,

In the past, I have turned off decorations and created my own window moving
and resizing handlers-- of course optimizing for speed. This approach still
forces square corners, but with some creative interface design, it can look
pretty nice.

For instance:

and

That said, my ultimate conclusion is that it worked TOO slow. It turns out
the

resizeStack handler is called more quickly from the OS stack resize vs a
mouseMove handler. I've finally decided to keep the basic window shape and
decorations, and work within them.

best,
Chipp
