it seems strange to me that the borders of windows would be made thicker
/all the time/ just so they could make better click targets when someone
needs to resize. 

why not just use a keyboard bind? hold down ALT when near an edge or
corner to resize. if within range (4 pixels) the cursor changes to a
resize cursor.

it works with my current window manager just fine. GNOME should do it
too and free up those precious pixels - a lesson in K.I.S.S.
