Hi Olivier,

I'm a bit worried about what this means(!)

Do you plan to start xfwm 4 from scratch? Is there any
fundamental flaw in xfwm 3 that that you never told us about? :-)

I could not test oroborus yet, but I guess that the main reason
for its very small size is lack of functionalities compared to xfwm...
In what sense is oroborus "better" than xfwm?


oroborus is 4600 lines of code; xfwm 26000.
Once compiled, I find that xfwm is ~2.5 times _smaller_
than oroborus (same compiler, platform, aso)

Funny, no?
