Oops, sorry I should have looked better! Great now dbus support it's
there, I was thinking implementing some sort of window manager
extension / plugin to change the hamster activity based on focused
window. The user could create patterns (maybe regex?) to match different
windows with the same activity (e.g. when I have a ooimpress with title
"NoC - Openoffice.org Impress" and a gedit with title "noc.c - gedit"
hamster should understand that I am working on NoC project).
I haven't deeply though the features or the implementation of this, but
if it get implemented in a smart way I think it can be a great feature
I would to hear your opinions and ideas about this proposal.
