isn't <ctrl><alt>+  assigned  to be "cycle through known resolutions"?
If I am correct, then why can't that cycling ability be incorporated into
right click properties for $yourFavWM? 

$YourFavWM could do something like read the config file or pole X (if
and ask what resolutions are allowed, present them in a drop down list, 
then do the cycling as you request.

And if I'm reading the subject line correctly, ...

how hard would it be to incorporate smbclient into gmc or konquorer so that
you could (in a magic folder kindof way, just like windoze) browse the
smb shares. I understand that the mounting and sharing of directories would
be a totally different request, but... I'd love to be able to gui 'browse'
the smb shares
that are available on the network.

It seems this would also bring some of that wonderful 'feel good' that IS

And does anyone know much about ftpfs, sftpfs, and finding ways for users to
directories to and from foreign machines.
