Not in general, and I would expect applications to behave really
badly if something altered its sizehints without its knowledge or
consent. (Heck, how many applications misbehave when a window
manager ignores their size hints and tells them so, as permitted by
MIT has a tool "nawm" which *might* be able to do this kind of thing;
I have had difficulty tracking it down though.
