That's not really possible. We don't know why the window is (re)sized. We just
know that it's been resized.
Currently, we request a resizeif the user changes AR, crop or zoom. The
question is whether we should also request a resize when the source changes,
or when the source format changes, or neither.
IMO, it's obvious that we should not request a resize when the old and new
source formats yield the same intended window size (from vout_SizeWindow()).
Users have complained when that happened in the past.
As for when the video format changes the intended window size, it's debatable,
and IIRC, users have expressed contradictory wishes.

That I'd tend to agree with.
