DisplayPosition in XFce 4

I've had a lot of fun in the past few days installing XFce 4 (I just
upgraded from XFce 3), playing with it, and generally just getting it
configured the way I like it.

I have but one complaint: when resizing windows, the height and width
of the new window are no longer displayed on the screen as they once were.
I spent a fair bit of time looking for a configuration option for this
feature, and eventually read some of the code to resize windows, but
couldn't really find anything.

So, I dug up the old XFce 3 code, and found:

DisplayPosition (XfwmWindow * tmp_win, int x, int y, int w, int h)

Is there anything like this in XFce 4?  If not, please consider this to be
a request to add this feature.  :-)  I do realize that developer time is
limited, and thank you all for your hard work so far.  If you're all too
busy, I can try to cook up a patch but I don't know any of the more
"modern" X libraries so it'll be an uphill battle for me.
