width and height methods not dynamic?

I was surprised to learn that the width and height fields in a widget
are not dynamic. This is not a bug in STk, but apparently part of the
design of Tk. The only way I can find to get the actual geometry of a
window seems to be with 'winfo geometry <widget>', which returns a X11
geometry string.

Is this the only way? Am I the only one who thinks this is completely
