First a whoops: I thought I was posting on the dev list...:) I'll
cross-post this message to devel since that's where I intended it to
be in the first place...:)

Right. The reason that I mentioned it was that Thomas was looking at
a couple of issues that appear to be related to the implementation of
netwm in other window managers.

I don't think they are.... Going through their change log
specifically notes when they started implementing netwm support, and
what changes have been made along the way... Doesn't sound like
they're merging code (but, I could be wrong...without comparing the
two code bases, or having some other confirmation/denial it would be
difficult to be certain).

Right - the reason I mentioned not having GTK+-2.0 is that I can't
play with the newer versions of Rox that are utilizing the netwm
support and need GTK+ 2 to compile. :)
