We're apparently miscommunicating again. I _do_ want the window to be
split, but I also want it to be split _evenly_.

Although the new customization system is definitely more powerful, I'm
still at a loss as to how to use it to preserve even the basic behaviour
I'm used to. That's a serious problem in itself IMHO.[1]

(I don't know if you consider the system advertising-ready as it is now,
but I think in that case there should be either a way to get it to
preserve the old behaviour (i.e. respect the split-*-threshold variables
etc.), or an explanation on how to migrate the old settings to the new
system. Otherwise I can't imagine how even people less dense and more
patient than me are going to be happy with it.)

Hm. I won't pretend I really understand what you're saying here. :-)

Yes, it's fixed now, thank you!


[1] To reiterate and put my it more concretely: in the old system I
simply set the `split-*-threshold' variables to specify conditions under
which a window can be split. Then whenever such conditions are satisfied
the windows are split _evenly_. How on Earth do I get this simple
behaviour with window-pub?
