IIRC that was the case, and it was removed as nobody manages to choose
the right level for every user. It happens with other apps too... in
the end, if you want to be sure you are not missing anything, you
select highest. Not very useful in the end.


I just found out that sawfish-ui has two modes, one with a treeview (unreachable without modifying the code)
and the one that is currently default. Perhaps this might help us.

Screenshot of sawfish-ui with treeviews (+ serveral new options + sub-tabs re-ordered):

the current behaviour can then be reached by running "sawfish-ui --flatten"

diff of my local version to current trunk (just in case you want to have it):
