I don't think I use that... do I?
Oh, I don't use icon.c at all, yet. I haven't decided how switcher will
work; I already need to rewrite a bunch of it to use a linked list of
tasks instead of a stupid array. (I was interested in making it *work*
first, before I did it right; I know that an array is the wrong way to
do it. :P)

I could start adding command-line options.
Currently, you can modify line, uh, 36 of further.c, where it calls
evas_new_all(), and switch RENDER_METHOD_ALPHA_SOFTWARE to one of the
other render methods in /usr/include/Evas.h .

I wish I had a FreeBSD box to play with this on; maybe I'll install it
on my Windows machine. :)

Also, I saw in your screenshot that you had transparent terminals. How
does this work? gnome-terminal won't let me set the transparent
option... maybe it only will work with Eterm?
