	SizeWindow -- Ask Intuition to size a window.

	SizeWindow( Window, DeltaX, DeltaY )
		    A0      D0      D1

	VOID SizeWindow( struct Window *, WORD, WORD );

	This routine sends a request to Intuition asking to size the window
	the specified amounts.  The delta arguments describe how much to
	size the window along the respective axes.

	Note that the window will not be sized immediately, but rather
	will be sized the next time Intuition receives an input event,
	which happens currently at a minimum rate of ten times per second,
	and a maximum of sixty times a second.  You can discover when
	you window has finally been sized by setting the IDCMP_NEWSIZE flag
	of the IDCMP of your window.  See the "Input and Output Methods"
	chapter of The Intuition Reference Manual for description of the IDCMP.

	New for V36: Intuition now will do validity checking on the final
	dimensions.  To change to new absolute dimensions, or to move and
	size a window in one step, use ChangeWindowBox().

	However, limit checking against window MinWidth, MinHeight,
	MaxWidth, and MaxHeight was not done prior to V36, and
	these fields are still ignored (as documented) if you have
	no sizing gadget (WFLG_SIZEGADGET is not set).  The *are*
	respected now (V36) if WFLG_SIZEGADGET is set.

	New for V36: you can determine when the change in size has
	taken effect by receiving the IDCMP_CHANGEWINDOW IDCMP message.

	Window = pointer to the structure of the window to be sized
	DeltaX = signed value describing how much to size the window
	 on the x-axis
	DeltaY = signed value describing how much to size the window
	 on the y-axis



	ChangeWindowBox(), MoveWindow(), WindowToFront(), WindowToBack()
