[As-users] potpourri of problems and wishes

Dear Aftersteppers!

I am having the following problems with our great window manager:
please help me out if you know how to solve these issues, if they
cannot be solved, i formally ask for a solution for those, since
they represent the last items that are missing for a really _perfect_
2-d wm.

after that afterstep should _really_ be able to emulate (almost) any
(static) 2-d interface out there.

it would be absolute dream if those could be done before
the upcoming 2.2 release + maybe that would give me enough time
to release asdemothemes and complete docs for that release.

as an appetizer for those demothemes look at

(please note that 3 of those themes are not from me, so if you'd
like to add your theme to this list you're welcome to do so.)

but 2.2 will be the biggest step forward since 2.0 anyway :)

now to my problems/wishes:

*shaped balloons:
 -i could not remove the bevel from titlebar-balloons.
 -MyStyle *PagerBalloon does not work (at least not with slicedimages)
 -an option to control position of text in balloon would be very fine
  (i personnally only need something like a border option since thick
   shaped borders look awfull if text is over them.)
 -no idea how to position icons in winlist
 -no window if no app is found would be very convenient, since i tend
  to kill it if it is empty.
 -is it possible to exclude windows from being displayed in pager (could
  make use of winlistskiplist)
 -decoration is not correct (only when first mapped, after move or resize
  everything is as it should be)
 -ability to add a spacer to folders so opened folder would be between
  folderbuttonimage and spacer

swallowing stuff: popups and menus cannot be swallowed. still problems with

thanks for your time
