<pre wrap="">in my oppinion, it is not necessary, because one has all needed
information already in
--> man XSizeHints
if a window says, for exampe 800x600, and says maybe in the aspect
ratios 4:3, the rotation preference is quite clear, i think.
800x600 doesn;'t even fit. its a minimum size. it's not sane to use such a
property as this doesn't tell you the original rotation - just a size. you are
overloading a property here that isn't meant for this information. ther's also
a window aspect ratio property - again, this isn't rotation. a wm may interpret
this by scrolling the window around, not rotating. or just make the window
smaller if it likes it or not (eg what e and matchbox do for example).
can you give us a hint where this (rotation) property can be found ?<br>
perhaps hint on manual page ?<br>
