I’ve done some further reading.

If I understand your description right, there is a direct equivalent
for z‐groups: levels. Here’s Apple’s documentation on them:

This is in addition to the basic ‘layers’, which orderWindow deals
with and which only affects windows in the same ‘level’.

It appears that a child window in NS is just a normal window which
moves and closes with its parent. So I think that means it’s more like
X’s child windows, except they don’t get clipped at the parent
window’s edges. They can also end up below the parent window.

I think this is probably what we want, for now at least.

FYI: there are also drawers and something called sheets, which appear
to be some sort of special modal drawer type thing used for error
messages and such.

I’ve pretty much got the undecorated frames sorted with only one major
bug I’m aware of when the frame is nearly the full height of the
screen. I think I may have to ask Anders about that as I can’t
understand the code that keeps the frame on‐screen, and I think it may
be the culprit.
