While we're at it... Is there any way of building something like this
into wmii? For example, I'd like to be able to hold a key combination
and have that show me all of the key combinations in the program.
This way, all I actually have to remember is that one key command. I
use wmii every third day or so currently (doing a lot of development
in OS X at the moment, mainly because I'm in love with BBEdit/
TextWrangler), and each time I go back I find myself struggling to
remember the key commands. I'll get it eventually, but it might be
nice for new users to only have to remember "hold meta-? for help".
I'm not advocating menus or toolbars or anything here -- Just a
simple way of showing the key commands, perhaps greying out those
that are not available for the current situation (such as if no frame
is selected or if there is no other column to move to).
