As a new year gift I have implemented the Windows version of SDL_GetWindowBordersSize(). I needed it for auto-selecting a cozy window size for the game I'm currently working on and noticed that it only worked under X11, so I thought it could be a good excuse to contribute back more stuff. The Mercurial patch is attached as a .diff file. Let me know what you think.

Happy 2018 to all the SDL2 devs and users!


PS: Keep in mind that Windows 10 includes the 8px invisible grip borders as part of the frame. There's a way of detecting if Aero/DWM is being used and ask only for the visible rect, but I believe that GetWindowRect() is doing that for a reason and working as intended, so I haven't changed it. (See [2])
