what the @#***!!

I just spent a day fooling around with some code that extended
a *view*'s size and position capabilities.  It failed badly,
and after copious research, I find that the reason is that
set-view-position calls set-view-container, twice!

Anybody wanna comment on why it does that?  Sure was a surprise!

Does anyone else out there, working with ACL, feel like a partical
physicist?  Trying to deduce the internal structure of a group
of objects by watching how they act under various conditions?
Why, oh why, can we not have the source code (as we do with MacApp)
for the damn *view*/*window*/*dialog* system?  Documentation
will never be as trustworthy and complete as code.  The usefulness
of the system would be hugely increased if trying to use it
weren't an extended guessing game.
