! How would that help me raise the pager when it is buried under other
! open windows?   I want to be able to pop the pager to the foreground
! when it is under other open windows. 

	Everyone sems to be missing the point that if it's hidden you
can't really click on it. :)  I think I did as well.  My advice would be -
if it's constantly running, edit it's entry in the database file and
remove the WindowListSkip option.  This way, it will always be available
from a root/middle (or right) mouse click.  I suppose you don't want it to
be set to AvoidCover, which would keep it ontop. :)
