It makes the delta combiner waaay simpler if I can assume that, when
combining two windows A and B, the length of the target view produced by
A is the same as the length of the source view expected by B, and that
A's target view starts at B'a source view offset.

Otherwise, I'd have to concatenate windows in the combiner, etc. Doable,
but moch more work. I actually plan to do it, but there's no way it
could be finished for Alpha, therefore not before 1.0.

Well, he didn't get it officially reviewed, which is our (my) fault,
really. I looked at it again now, and it looks very nice indeed. I think
it should go in.
