Hmmm, a hack that comes to mind would be opening a new window with a specified
size, and then closing the old one . . .

Kinda ugly, though.  I'd suggest against it.  There's a big debate on
www-talk@w3.org about this about the kosherness of window resizes.  The general
consensus is that doing so is very rude to the users and probably unacceptable.
