Sylvain:

The problem arises with layout in resizeable windows.  You still have to
design your layout for the smallest space -- where I am now. Of course you
can have scrolling buttons and edit fields in a resizeable window, but
that's really a pain for the user -- I don't want to do that.

I have one beta-tester that uses a small screen Mac and I wonder how much
business I would lose if I designed my program for a larger screen?
