Extended Window Manager Hints

    I've just been trying to read the document about extwmhints at 
http://developer.gnome.org/doc/standards/extwmhints/book1.html, but most
links seem broken. Do you know about another place where I can find this
    My interest for this proposal comes from a discussion at the
gnome-usability list. The discussion is long and you can read it in the
archives (http://mail.gnome.org/archives/usability/ , the threads about
instant-apply windows), but a summary is in this post:
    Essentially, the idea is that clients should be able to ask the WM
what capabilities provides in its frame ;i.e., if the frame has a close
button, for this case, but it could be useful to have other capabilities
(other buttons, title text visible, moveable, resizeable, etc.)
    I'm interested in your oppinion about this issue. This has been a
long flamewar at gnome-usability for not having something like this.

Thanks for your time,
