Sorry, I don't know of any. Also consider the fact that most people 
don't resize their browsers. Usually they minimize/maximize them only. 
Of course I'm not against a better solution :)

I'm -1 on using @import trick because I don't like the idea of
maintaining two versions of a big file like style.css is. It also requires
JS to figure out the useragent.
If many people complain we will reconsider I guess.
