[xfwm4] Positioning Bug

I am using xfwm4 from CVS. I cannot move windows above the top of the
screen. Since I can place windows partly off-screen on the other three
sides, this seems to be a bug.

I noticed this when a vim window resized itself below the bottom of the
screen and then popped up an error message -- which I couldn't read. I
tried to move the screen up without success. 

Which brings up a small feature request: the ability to resize a window
by moving the upper border downwards, as can be done with the other
three sides. You could probably decide whether to move or resize by
setting a resize width at the top. That is, if the pointer is within 2
or 3 pixels of the top of the titlebar, resize rather than move and hint
with the pointer approriately.

It's not really vital, but would be Nice To Have(tm).
