Interesting that window tools have focus support. I assume that this means they can switch toolsprites when the window gains or loses the focus. I hope that the system follows the same procedure as the new Wimp in the ROOL sources (i.e. prefixes replacement sprites with an 'f', etc.). If so, it'll be easy to make suitable themes for both ROL and ROOL's stream of the OS.

I installed it on my copy of VirtualRPC for MAC and it works very nicely. The way the windows move back onscreen is particularly useful when running RISCOS in a Window.
