Dunno, but what about the Treeview/Re-exposed and Re-ordered Options? Is
it OK like that? If so I would update the Wiki patches - which are not
equal to what I made in the meantime.

And is this to be for 1.3.5 or 1.5.0 (I'm just asking, 'cause those
patches revert that ugly changes made at GNOME 2.0 and there also
finishing two goals for 1.5.0 - Undeprecating Viewports, different
SawfishUI UI)


GNOME/Sawfish rule!
