Can we make the settings dialog moveable and resizable?

Use case or problem

When changing settings pertaining to the UI, such as text colors, the GUI gets in the way so I have to keep escaping out of it to preview the changes, then switch back in.
As you can see, the Prefs GUI blocks the view:

Proposed solution

Make the modal preferences dialog resizable and movable.

Current workaround (optional)

Open a new window and modify the preferences there while observing changes in the current window.
