I don't really see whats the problem with that approach and why struts
has to make contiguous region. The algorithms for avoiding arbitrary
non-contiguous area are many and trivial to implement - I do all of the
above plus edge snapping in about 100 lines of code in AfterStep.
Can you post the code? Is that only for motion, or for resizing?
The actuall code for avoiding/snapping starts in moveresize.c at line
455 I think.
Basically I build ordered list of vertical and horizontal gridlines and
assign gravities to each side of each grid line. Negative gravity
signifies that no window should approach it closer then the modulus of
gravity, while posititive gravity signifies distance from which window
edge could be attracted to the gridline.
This thing is more complex due to the edge-snapping, and If I was doing
just the strut/avoid cover thing I would go with the set of available
rectangles and best-fit criteria.
