      I am really unhappy that panes don't have labels in my AllegroCL
      x-based frames. this is causing me to do things to fake it which I
      don't like.

      wha I'm not doing is putting in an extra tiny pane just to hold the
      label, although i may get annoyed and do that some time.

      is CLIM 2 going to allow this on X frames?

   CLIM 2 will pre-package a pane labelling mechanism.  It will actually
   be implemented as a separate sheet holding the label, but you won't

I expected you to say that this is an Allegro back-end bug.  You imply
that CLIM 1.1 doesn't support pane labels.  And, indeed, my X-based
Lucid version of CLIM also ignores my pane labels (and I sent a bug
report to Lucid which has not been acknowledged).  Why does the
Symbolics version have labels?
