I know all that. But have a look at the notebook-style: sawfish-ui
--flatten. This is horrible. Too much options for this style. Besides
that: I'm working on updating rep-gtk to the gtk+ 2.12 API and started
implementing new widgets, to replace the deprecated ones. Several new
widgets are already in rep-gtk HEAD. in sawfish HEAD the GtkButton +
GtkPreview (deprecated) + GtkColorSelection Trio has been replaced by
the new GtkColorButton, and our custom make-url-widget has been replaced
by the GtkLinkButton. I have already started implementing the
GtkTreeView, but I don't know wether it will be already available in
1.6s UI, as it not just requires major work on rep-gtk, but sawfish-ui
as well.
