'Sticky' worked in 'Points' and translated to the screen res (it
would also allow you to use other standard units like 'mm' and
'in'). It always used the 'OS-GUI-API' to display 'GUI-Objects'
and to get the layout right it asked the 'OS' for the sizes of the
object first. We spent a lot of time on getting this right :-)
The last version of 'Sticky' worked on Solaris/Motif and OS2/PM
but there where working versions in it history for Windows &
X/Athena & X/OLIT (althought I can not guarentee that any of
it will compile now).
