Hi Gerald,

Yes, I already integrated them. You can see that what I did was to make 
the full window border sensitive, and I made it scale with UI scaling 
(defined by World / Preferences... / Set System Font...). I think this 
is a good solution. A preference for wideWiindowBorders, to ease using 
the UI with a finger in a touch device makes sense to me.
