Thanks very much for making this available.  Nice stuff.

Just tested on OSX 10.2.8 (under Rev and MetaCard).  Both seem to work fine.

Any possibility of adding alpha mask support for the window, based on a
grayscale bitmap image?  This would be something of a holy grail for us UI
folks: translucent windows with antialiased edges...

Nice work; thanks again.
