Yeah. It's not a big deal. I was just wondering if it could be done.

Don't talk it down. I happen to like further. It's a cool alternative to a traditional desktop. If I had the time I'd write some cool plugins for it. I did fool a bit around with Sam's sawfish-menu hack. I switched l2 to middle-click and the sawfish-menu to right-click and tried to resolve some inconsistencies between them. Basically, I made it so that it removes the l2 if you open a sawfish menu (right-click while l2 is displayed), but I couldn't get it to remove the sawfish-menu if you want to open l2 (middle-click if sawfish-menu is displayed). When the sawfish-menu is open, it automatically grabs the next desktop-click, so further doesn't get a chance to coordinate it. I've come to the conclusion that if I want this behaviour that I'd have to write my own menu plugin/function. Which I might do... but I have no idea on how to do it. Where do you suggest that I start if I want to do this (documentation)?
