Hi All,

Looks like there is consensus...

If a developer needs a backdrop, it´s easier
to create your own backdrop...

Xavier Bury:
-- untested but it should work... 

constant backdropfilename="mybackdrop.rev" 

on resume 
  if there is not a stack backdropfilename then 
    open stack backdropfilename -- substack of me 
    set the rect of stack backbackdropfilenamedrop to the screenrect 
  end if 
  go to me 
end resume 

on suspend 
  -- save anything? 
  hide stack backdropfilename 
end suspend 

Richmond Mathewson answers:

if you really feel the urge to have some sort of backdrop 
use a vast substack with a neutral colour/texture that gets "pushed" 
to the back when it is opened; make sure it stays there even when 
end-users click on it:
