No.  In general, XtMoveWidget(), XtResizeWidget(),
XtMakeGeometryRequest(), and XtConfigureWidget() are for widget
internals only.  The only way for applications to change widget
geometry or configuration is through the XtSetValues() interface and
setting the XtNx, XtNy, XtNwidth and XtNheight resources.  If this
interface does not give you what you want, you should subclass the
widget to modify its geometry managers.
