Isn't there a bigger problem of sub-window management (I didn't say MDI)
? Each and every big app implement it's own tabbed windows (like galeon)
or aggregated windows (like gimp) widget. I imagine this has been
already flamed^Wdiscussed to death, but shouldn't there be an optional
protocol for "subwindows" (placement, etc.) between toolkit and
WM/pagers/etc. ? Or at least some well-thought toolkit helper ?
Having a specific inconsistent behavior for each application isn't that
