However, I've just had a confirmation e-mail from a gnome developer
saying that I will never see viewports in gnome2. He has pointed me to a
discussion which I still have to read.
The only way to have viewports now is to make sawfish pager work well

And, be sure, they will have to change the GPL to avoid me or someone
else doing this OR create a new desktop environment. Too much people use
to work with viewports. I know this topic has been longly discussed so I
