Re: labels for panes

why not have done something (like I *think* I remember lispms doing)
like this:

reserve space at either top or bottom of the pane which is part of the
margin region and put the label in that space? that way the interior
clipping region of the pane is cleanly separated from the label.
scroll-bars can go in the margins, as can things like choice-boxes,
etc, and you can be certain that they won't be affected by any drawing
to the window (except calls to low-level functions which don't know
about the margins as clipping regions).
