I use 'xv' and (the window manager's own) 'wmiv' as image viewers, but had a
quick look at 'feh's man page, and would be interested how its '-list' output
compares to '$ identify *'.

re "coding approach", perhaps look at 'xterm' (or some other "old" utility)
source instead.  also, ought to have mentioned that the actual call to
XReparentWindow() is conditional on a call to a wrapper function
('xtermGetWinAttrs()') succeeding; that, essentially, is a
'XGetWindowAttributes()' call to see whether the id is valid.

I think they should be called labels not captions, as they're inside the images
:-).  natty dash separators, are they supplied or did you have to type them?
