are X groups definable by the user or are they program specific? can
you set a few xterms to be part of the same group?

i've added a bit of feedback to my stuff, when you add a window to a
group all the other window's borders get raised/flashed (like when you
move through the window menu). still not enough... 

i think i'm going to try to flash the group number in the top left
corner (just hack the channel # code).
