No, and the disgraceful but accurate reason why is that opaque
move/resize is really easy to code (and nicer, if your hardware
is up to it) and I never made the effort to work out how
outline move/resize worked.

Do you mean, though, that for move the border would have to
disconnect itself from its window and move independently?
Certainly even slower, given the implementation of borders.
