[Project_owners] Mimimum size for XUL window

FYI, here is the code that I used that does what I need:

const WINDOW_WIDTH = 800;
const WINDOW_HEIGHT = 600;

function onResize()
   var tHeight = WINDOW_HEIGHT;
   if (this.outerHeight >= WINDOW_HEIGHT)
     tHeight = this.outerHeight;

   var tWidth = WINDOW_WIDTH;
   if (this.outerWidth >= WINDOW_WIDTH)
     tWidth = this.outerWidth;

   this.resizeTo(tWidth, tHeight);

window.addEventListener('resize', onResize, false);

The window will never go below the values defined in the const 
variables, and if either side is made bigger than the min-size, it is 
allowed to stay that way.

Thanks for the pointers.
