so why not dump the whole libgnomeui. everything in there needs to be

and let me add one more con: it looks ugly ;)

it is, however, nice to see such a minor issue spark such a discussion.
anyway for the
time being the code stays in. reverting it via CVS is not an option
since a number of other changes went in with it. if the decision is not
to include WiW mode, I'll manually remove the related code before the
API freeze for gnome-libs 2.0. it isn't going to be much work.
