new vinyl siding over existing siding

I'm debating about installing vinyl over the current masonite siding using furring strips. I'm wondering though what you do around the windows. Won't the new siding end up being further out so that the old window trim ends up recessed inside of the new siding?

I am thinking about doing the same thing. I am planning on using styrafoam furring that will level out the surface. My windows have the same problem. Several neighbors have done the same thing and it looks ok even though the siding is almost further out than the window. I guess I worry about moisture problems being trapped in the walls more. I don't plan on staying at my current house much longer though.
