Hi Sander,

Huh, I guess I do need some time to get used to this idea. So now my
question is, if I would like a client to always has certain fixed size,
how would I do that? I'm guessing I should use auto-property, in /rules,
but I don't know that the syntax should be. Thanks again.

PS: Where can I find docs on wmii-3?
