Or maybe not, instead getting 1.3.4 out soonish and testing the new
patches in no hurry.  Your call of course, but Sawfish has been very
stable for years (nearly dead, but dead is stable), and users may
expect stability also from new releases.  Also, be wary of adding
defcustoms: usability will go downhill as clutter increases.  If
someone would write a better sawfish-ui with a decent search function
for options, then we could add defcustoms to our hearts' content, but
not with the current UI.

I know about the usability issue.

a) I would like to re-order the options for better usability.  The old and the new ones.
(After we decided, what new option gets in and which not  - so that I only have to do it once)

b) I really would like to create a new UI - but my lisp skill are not good enough and rep-glade is still dead.

But perhaps you, Andrea, Ferk and GSR (our great lisp hackers) can make a new UI for 1.3.5?

Does rep-gtk support Frame-Widgets? I'm pretty sure, but I haven't checked yet.
That could solve our problem.

> but only two persons testing them (me and him) is not enough,

Sorry, I probably cannot help much for the next month or so.


GNOME/Sawfish rule!
