As already explained, this cannot work. We tried that already in the past and 
removed it knowingly. The core has no way to handle rejected resizes, since 
they are asynchronous and already acted upon by the time this callback is 

Indeed, the Resize() function would need to pass the error to the caller, 
which it cannot do.

No thanks.
