Obviously that would work, but that would also be just about my last
choice as an acceptable solution.

While I doubt anyone is going to want to change struct winsize (or at
least not as long as 64K pixels is enough as a dimension) doing it that
way sets a poor precedent, and sometime someone is likely to copy that
solution with something that is more likely to change.

I will hunt more for other possibilities before even contemplating that one.
