Mea culpa.  I should have expressed myself better.  What I meant to
suggest is a list of pre-defined fixed window sizes that would be
selectable through either a dialog or a command-line option.  These window
sizes could also, per Pavel Tsekov's suggestion, correspond to the common
video modes.
As far as I understand, the dialogs are defined in the resource files.  If
there are multiple resource files, each of which defines dialogs for a
particular window size, the right one can be selected in main() (when all
the *::Create() methods are called).
