Increase shadow area to 45 pixels (but not grip area)

Title: Re: 0px window borders and larger shadows
" * the shadow and the grabbable area are not the same, I think we want about 5px for the magic grabbable area, but a lot more for the shadow.
* the current shadow in the archive is too heavy, yours is, I think, a
little too light. I'd make it 45px wide and 0.75 opacity and see how
that shapes up
0px borders introduced a regression for metacity and Unity-2D users so was reverted for the moment (see bug #733431); but please continue to discuss the merits of what the longer-term solution should be.
Proposal to re-apply zero-pixel borders:
Bug #740579 ("Wishlist: move to 0px borders now that Unity and Unity-2D/Metacity can cope")
