  I read small bits of sr-speedbar a little while ago.  As far as I
know, it uses the same techniques that ECB uses, by advising various
windowing functions in order to keep the speedbar window safe.  It
also uses a bunch of speedbar's hooks. A while ago (June?) there were
lots of discussions on emacs-devel on how to make ECB work without
advice in Emacs.  I would imagine that the simpler sr-speedbar would
benefit from the same kind of thing.

  I lost track of the ECB discussion though, so I don't know what
sorts of changes were made for it.

  I can read some more of sr-speedbar if a more detailed opinion is
