We have command line option support, so adding a integer pair grabber
isn't a big deal. I'll let Gary answer as to the overhead multiple
window defs would incur (He's the w32 GUI wizzard :] ). 
I suspect that knowing the size in advance doesn't help much, as we
still have the resizing logic to manage on all the pages.
