The new widget does the same, but is has a creaner api IMHO.

Well it's just a kickoff, I have enough time in the next 2 months to
finish this stuff, so if you start with things you get more respond
from other devs, and that's what libxfce4ui needs.

I'm not superman :-). Will add them later, like i said in the first mail.

Good idea. Will take a look.

Changed that function internally. Gtk centers properly on monitors
when GTK_WIN_POS_CENTER is set. So the function only sets the window
screen to the screen a the pointer.

Well I do the code writing and other people shout, looks like a good
way to me to make some nice out of it ^_^.
