Re: Themes for 3.0

Hi. New change in stickiness toggling is wrong; When I toggle
viewport-stickiness of one emacs window, all emacs windows get
toggled, too. The current tab code operates on "group", but all emacs
windows belong to the same group. (This is terrible for me.)

It seems that a new group is created for each tab group. If it's so,
then it's wrong. In fact, group is set by X, and can be set by other
Sawfish codes (eg by user), too. Since a window belongs to only one
group, tab code shouldn't use group. Instead, it has to prepare a list
(or vector) of tabgroups, and each element remembers the member
windows of each tabgroup. (And the lookup function which returns the
tabgroup a window belongs to.)

I know that stickiness and other issues had to be fixed, and thank
you anyway for your effort.

I don't think I will have enough time to complete docs for 1.8, even
if it's without tabs-ng. Even with RC, doc should be supplied. (The
users' first impression is really important. :)

I haven't read tabs-ng codes, but at least it should not worsen the
group issue.

Thanks all. Regards,
