This may be horrendously stupid (I just don't have enough experience
with specs and window managers to know yet), but I'm throwing this idea
How about STATE_MINIMIZED = 'HIDDEN in "canonical" way'. A current
example of "non-canonical" hiding is SHADED, thus for now,
STATE_MINIMIZED = HIDDEN - SHADED
another "non-canonical" hiding could come from what I understand Sun's
Looking Glass stuff does; where the user could rotate the window depth
wise so only the side of the window is visible, similar to closing a
book and placing on a shelf. Say we call this hiding method SHELVED.
Then we would have
STATE_MINIMIZED = HIDDEN - SHADED - SHELVED
Is that a useful idea at all?
