        A bit late as this is the second time I say this. :-)

        See. That's exactly my point. I already said after I was done with
the clipping code I got the update code to work (as you know, it does not work
great, but it worked for what we needed at that moment). Then I realized that
for making it work just right I had to have a new, more clean and performant,
window manager (as you have noticed it doesn't have to be completed for the
update code to work) so I went into writing it. Now, when I'm done I would like
to continue from where I have left.
        That is what I wanted but, you don't always get what you want... :-)

        Have I finally done that?

        Agree.

        I still don't think it is a good decision. :-)

        I'll see what I can do.
