    What does "call frame-attribute" mean? I see no such function in Emacs 22.1.
    Could you please give a more concrete example?

Sorry, I should have written `face-attribute'.

    Assuming I could understand and do what you describe, why would each person
    need to do all of that, just to be able to change a face attribute? Can't we
    have an Emacs function that does exactly that, change certain attributes
    only? What was wrong with `modify-face', for that matter?

I don't mind.
