unstable version)

Client-side decorations often have invisible	portions like drop-shadows which should be ignored for the	purposes of aligning, placing and constraining windows.	The window geometry is double buffered, and will be applied at the	time wl_surface.commit of the corresponding wl_surface is called.	Once the window geometry of the surface is set, it is not possible to	unset it, and it will remain the same until set_window_geometry is	called again, even if a new subsurface or buffer is attached.	If never set, the value is the full bounds of the surface,	including any subsurfaces. This updates dynamically on every	commit. This unset is meant for extremely simple clients.	The arguments are given in the surface-local coordinate space of	the wl_surface associated with this xdg_surface.	The width and height must be greater than zero. Setting an invalid size	will raise an error. When applied, the effective window geometry will be	the set window geometry clamped to the bounding rectangle of the	combined geometry of the surface of the xdg_surface and the associated	subsurfaces.      </description>*      <arg name="x" type="int"/>       <-----------------------------------------------
