Thanks for your thoughts. It got me thinking I could redefine Layout and then
insert some logging into action facets.
That would work for any application which neither used make-face nor replaced
an action facet after layout. I know that's not all applications, but it
would be a start.
Unfortunately, I fell at the first hurdle in cloning Layout.
Layout, it would seem, contains the words vid-face and vid-styles. These
belong to a context that cloning the Layout function breaks. There is
probably an easy way round this, so if anyone could tell me I'd be grateful.
To demonstrate the problem:
View/new Lay [Button "this works"]
Lay: do load mold :layout
View/new Lay [Button "this does not work"]
equal? :lay :layout
equal? mold :lay mold :layout
(the sources are identical but the contexts are not).
