[STR New]

Version: 1.3-feature


Although I voted +1 in my first comment [1] to the discussion referred to
above I'm no longer convinced that this STR is a useful addition. Given
**all** the problems I mentioned in the discussion I'm not sure if such an
addition would not add even more problems to a widget that is problematic
anyway.

Meanwhile I'm almost ready with the implementation of Fl_Grid and I'm
confident that this widget can do the job requested (basically a
combination of left and right alignment of widgets?) much easier and more
reliably than Fl_Pack could do. Or did I miss anything?

I suggest to close this STR (or put it on hold until we know if Fl_Grid can
do it) in favor of a solution with Fl_Grid - unless the patch is really
good to go and works reliably.
