[IMPORTANT] EdgeActions ready (+ setup guide)

Hi all!

EdgeActions is now considered stable and ready for testing (and merge into 
master, once verified by other people than just me).

Q: What is EdgeActions (EA)?
A: The union of EdgeFlip, HotSpots and ViewportDrag (ex InfiniteDesktop)

Q: How to test?
A: git branch test # create new branch "test" from master
    git checkout test # switch to it
    git merge edge-actions # ... you need to resolve the conflicts (sorry)
    go installing and testing

Q: How to set it up?
A: Everything except the hot-spots actions can be setup via SawfishConfig.

Also all 4 edges are now separated, that means you decide which edges have an 
action and which action they perform! (yay for »yet-another-configuration-
option« ™)

Actions for when hitting the edge with the pointer and when hitting while 
moving a window are now SPLIT. So you can have separated behavior or the same 
for both cases, just as you like.

The 4 corner are preserved to HotSpots. By default the corners are 50 px in 
both x and y direction along the edge from each corner, it's adjustable.

Besides ViewportDrag now also works while moving a window. 

(We do now have much more flexibility with noticably less and easier-to-read 
code. You'll be thrilled once you got used to it.)

Next follows my example configuration:

;; fancy customized edge-actions
( require 'sawfish.wm.edge.actions )

( defvar-setq edge-actions-enabled t )
( defvar-setq edge-actions-delay 250 )

( edges-activate )

;; NOTE the lambda!
;; NOTE the syntax-change in jump-or-exec!
( defvar-setq top-left-corner-program
  ( lambda () ( jump-or-exec "Iceweasel" "iceweasel" #:match-class t ) ) )

( defvar-setq top-right-corner-program
  ( lambda () ( pager-unhide ) ) )

( defvar-setq  bottom-right-corner-program
  ( lambda () ( system "amarok &" ) ) )

( defvar-setq bottom-left-corner-program
  ( lambda () ( jump-or-exec "VirtualBox" "VirtualBox" #:match-class t ) ) )

( defvar-setq top-edge-program
  ( lambda () ( jump-or-exec "Konsole" "konsole" #:match-class t ) ) )

( defvar-setq bottom-edge-program
  ( lambda () ( delete-window ( input-focus ) ) ) )

;; actions when pointer hits edge
( defvar-setq left-edge-func 'flip-viewport )
( defvar-setq right-edge-func 'flip-viewport )
( defvar-setq bottom-edge-func 'none )
( defvar-setq top-edge-func 'hot-spot )

;; actions while moving window hits edge
( defvar-setq left-edge-move-func 'flip-workspace )
( defvar-setq right-edge-move-func 'flip-workspace )
( defvar-setq bottom-edge-move-func 'hot-spot )
( defvar-setq top-edge-move-func 'none )

That's it.

Happy testing,

Lieber Robert,

da ich seit fast 10 Jahren mit Linux (Caldera, Suse und Mandrake) und 
WindowsNT (hoffentlich bald 2000) zusammenarbeite (bei Linux MUSS),
habe ich Ahnung.

  Immerhin sehr anständig von dir, dass du sie
  so gut versteckst, dass es keiner merkt...
