I can only speak for the Horst space (which doesn't use sash
windows currently) and not for Richard space (which does seem
to use them). Grepping for OnSize won't reveal what we are
looking for because we don't override it in all the places
we'd need to look at. There's no need to that's why. There
does seem to be a need for getting Sash windows to work on the
Mac, though. It's a fair bit of manual work provided one has a
Mac at hand to find the places. Not that it shouldn't be done
but it's not a one-hour fix, unfortunately.

Yes, like that. There already are examples of this for other
reasons sprinkled about.

Good idea.

Not that I know.

BTW, Sebastian and me met up with Michael Bonert, our other
Canadian GnuMedder, and had a good time at Mainz.
