There is now a "before-restart-hook", that should allow doing some operations. 
Still tables & stuff shouldn't exist after restart (new env), so the table 
would need to be saved in a different way.

Thanks for your efforts (again).

StyleTab is the best theme outwhere.

One thing that came up in my mind: some themes dont thave the titlebar over 
the full length of the window. (eg.: absolute-e), they only use the really 
required space. Maybe you might add this as an option? It's just some thing 
that StyleTab lacks compared to other styles (and might increase adoption).
