        Hm, you think I don't love the fact Stephan handled the instruction
clipping code? Boy, you don't know how happy I was when I saw fonts being
drawn on inside the window's clipping region.

        Sure this isn't a competition? But then, how is it that when I said
I will handle this a long time ago, you tell me: let Stephan do that he has
more time. Is that nice?!
        app_server will not be ready until it's totally ready, and for that
other things need to be done too.

        The update code, is much easier. And I already have the building
blocks (window manager and clipping code).
        Doesn't matter if my time spent on app_server development is less
than Stephan's, I took a job and it would REALLY nice of you to let me finish
it as you see I'm actively working at it (update code needs window manager,

        That isn't nice as he would not want to give up its current progress.

        True, after the update code.
        BTW, I would like some help on the remaining BWindow/BView methods as
those are too many for me to finish them in reasonable time. Almost all those
remaining methods have some basic code written in them from there to start from,
all there's left to be done is to make them work.
