What's "times eight"? Oh, scissors mark...

Or later.

Absolutely. Three will be reassuring, though. Fearless fighters
suddenly go, that's life.

I think this should be the first on agenda. This is necessary even 
without transition to guile/others. One reason is that librep / sawfish
lack exactness in doc, or doc itself, so the correct behavior is hidden.
Thus, going through bugzilla is not enough, but the entire revision of
code is necessary.

For example, today I wrote in other thread that error signal puts the
control back to the innermost input loop, if it's not handled. But what
happens if it is done during the sawfish initialization?

It won't hurt, so if you know lisp well, please do it. Even small
things, like annotations in codes, help.

Yes, let me too emphasize this.
