This is most interesting information, perhaps I should dust off my
"old" stroke recognition code.

It kinda stranded on the integration into the seemingly newer ending
list off "new" window managers (gnome->matchbox->illume) each one
seeming to have new limitations end requirements.
But you code snippets looks like a "cut and paste" fix for my old
matchbox compatible code.
