Well, every time I touched the resize/scale dialogs so far, I very
soon felt the stronge urge to do something else. So if you think this
is easy, please give it a try. Not saying that it cannot be done but
last time I looked I found that this stuff is hairy, This is one of
the areas that haven't seen much cleanup since 1.2 and so it's still
that kind of code that breaks all around you when you touch a few
lines of it...
