I would like to get expose support to Fluxbox. It can
be used in fluxbox with skippy, but it isn't very
flexible nor userfriendly. It would be a choice in
configure.

There is few example what I mean:

    skippy is really weak. All it does is to take screenshots
    of it, paste it on the screen. It looks ugly, plain ugly. I
    thought it is the animation that looks nice; not sure if it
    is possible to do it with window resizing?

    of coz it takes a screenshot coz that the way it works
    _without_ interfering too much with the user. sure, you
    could "take a screenshot" everytime something changes in
    that window but you wont have much fun then with your
    xsession anymore. thats exactly the reason why xgl and aiglx
    were created: the content of the windows are available in
    textures and you can "resize" the windows thru ogl with no
    additional cost.

    and thats why i dont think fbox will have an internal skippy
    or expose function. ever. not without the xgl/aiglx module
    (which is far far far away)
