Hmmm, didn't know that.  I did notice it was possible as the layers
took into account all the information needed already (x,y,h,w). 
Admittedly I didn't attempt to patch it because the layers stuff seems
to span 3-4 files, so it was hard to follow.  Maybe I will do
something with it - or at least try.  Would you, by chance, be willing
to accept patches to get rid of the K&R style?  Call me OCD, but if I
was going to work on screen at all I would *have* to clean it up a bit
- and I just might be crazy enough to do it 8)
