Cool! I saw that Code Tek had a hack for this but having a lower level
hack is for sure the way to go.
In the meantime, developers are left hanging with putting out apps
that have just way too many windows. I've used Gimp on my OSX box and
it totally sucks having to first clicking the window to get focus
before being able to click the item. If the app ran on a MDI
framework, this would not be necessary.
Incidentally, you can make Apple's quartzwm behave in a more sensible
manner. At a terminal:
defaults write com.apple.x11 wm_click_through -bool true
Regarding MDI, I still see many apps that are being developed that don't
have MDI support and they really need it. A good example is BBEdit on
Mac. I don't use this app because it's just too hard to manage the
multiple sources I have open at one time to do my coding. Thankfully
Hopefully we can see such MDI frameworks coming to the GTK core level or
even on OSX some day.
Thanks for the info.
