Sounds good to me!  The only think I see missing is that I've had GNOME apps
that refuse to start up in ctwm.  I think that has to do with the desktop vs.
window manager difference...  Is that what "ICCM" is about?

I'm sorry I don't know more about the WM's, I wish I did.  But my "day job" is
working on Mac OS X drivers and utilities so I already have to suffer with a
change in working paradigm amongst other things...

And believe me, working on a desktop like OS X (or KDE or GNOME or Win 95,
etc) and all the mousing I have to do and the lack of a good VWM sure makes me
love CTWM all the more!

As for paying, whomever takes on this project can feel free to chache my email
address and when the handoff is done we can talk about how much and how
frequently.  I'm not made of $$, but it *is* a business expense for me...

Anyone else who would be willing to help out like this, please let the
appropriate people know.
