Re: Decorations (again)

[layers discussion snipped]

OK, if we have window categories which indicate both the functional category 
and the visual category of the window (ie your suggestion of adding Desktop 
and Dock categories), and there is already a hint to distinguish urgent 
message boxes from non-urgent dialogs, do we need any layer hints at all?

Does anyone think we need more flexibility than the following hints will 
provide (except for unique cases which might be better handled on an
individual basis)?

Categories (set zero or one):

Desktop feature
Main window (default)

Hints (set zero or more):

Group modal

Sounds very neat.  :)
