Absolutely.  From looking at the libstroke homepage [0] it seems as though
FVWM are the only real users of this library.  Heck, they even have FVWM
listed as a reference program---including packaging up the FVWM sources for
2.0.45.  Historically interesting, but hardly relevant.

I am all in favour of writing a program to do this external to FVWM
instead---heck, it could even be a module if necessary.  But I don't like it
in the core of FVWM, and never have---the STROKE_CODE macro seems to really
irritate me.
