Thank you for your reply Anselm.

One thing made me curious; do you already have an idea how to adress

Or do you plan not to buttonstruct the button events on client windows?

Whatever... I got some more important things to tell:

This one idea i'd especially like to see included:

Let me rephrase it. The variables ntags, seltags[] and prevtags[]
aren't available for extension in a .c file included from config.h. Is
this policy (you don't want the people to write their own view()
routine) or do you, as it may not be, care at all?

There is one more point i'd like to know the rationale behind rejection:

>> While testing with OJ Mixer i found something in configurerequest()

In short: Why shouldn't the layout react on a client changing size?

Then there is one thing i wrote but then found out that we're there

Don't know how it eluded me but clients are already doubly linked.
Maybe i haven't seen it because i didn't notice any code using it...
