[wmx] small wishlistJohannes Zellner

recently I tryed wmx and got struck by it's simplicity and appearance.
Thanks for these really nice shaped windows!
nevertheless, here is my list of features, which could probably added
w/o any trouble:
- I like CONFIG_FLIP_DELAY and CONFIG_QUICK_FLIP_DELAY to be really
fast, as I don't like to wait for the reappearance for the windows.
But additionaly, I'd like to have the green numbers displayed for
a few seconds just for information.
- Is is posssible to have the `title' on the left side transparent ?
(I'm not too experienced in X, but I guess one should only have
to create an additional mask for the XShape, isn't it)
- I really like the appearance of the non-active window borders with
this small gap between border and window. What about having this style
also for active windows ? -- the activeness could then be marked=20
with another pixmap.
- Is this a bug? If I launch xv, and switch between channels, xv will
be at the top left corner if I come back to the original channel.
This is not true with xterms. (what's going on there ?)
- some more key shortcut configurability would be nice.
In fvwm95 for example, I used to have <Ctrl>-F1 for a local xterm,
<Ctrl>-F2 for xterm -e rlogin machine2, <Ctlr>-F3 for machine3 ...
- this is just a hint:
The default setting <Alt>-<Left> for switching between channels
hides bindings for applications like netscapes `back' / `forward'.
I just changed the modifier to Control ... but you might be right,
that's upon the individual taste of everybody who is compiling wmx.
