Indeed. That used to annoy me: the best two features that FVWM had was
that you could move the mouse pointer, and windows around without
restorting to the mouse. You still can't do this in anything bar FVWM
However, the GTK config tool allows you to bind stuff to about fifty
functions, amoung them "Maximise height of window to availible space". Very
very cool. No "move mouse around" type stuff.

Nah. You can't do stuff like that. What I have to get around this is a
Desktop (4) for mail, and that's all I run there. I've the "Mailcheck"
applet for the GNOME panel, which starts off "Eterm -t mutt". The Eterm
theme for Mutt runs mutt with menus & stuff for it. It's sufficent.

You don't have enought for E's "Move window translucently", without a time
delay trust me ;) The moving is fine on a PII233, but a full-screen
netscape delays by about 2 seconds...
This is kinda embarrassing, but does anyone know how to do simple stuff
like "Make back menu come up with button 3, not button 1", and change what
the back menu says ?
Is PIRACY killing the Amiga?" bravely ponders AMIGA FORMAT -
well, either that or someone's stopped manufacturing the hardware.
