Hi Dan,

Thanks for the patch.  This looks interesting.  I'd like to try it out
and see how it works.  However, your patches didn't apply clean for
me, some actions.c.flc garbage in the second patch.  Once I got things
patched, I had a problem compiling:

Making all in src
make[1]: Entering directory `/home/rcyeske/src/cvsx/ratpoison/src'
gcc -DHAVE_CONFIG_H -I. -I. -I.     -Wall -O2  -I/usr/X11R6/include -c actions.c

Can you resend?
