Wow, fvwm history that is before my time?  (I think.)

All I can come up with is a config file with this:

AddToMenu Module-Popup  "Modules"       Title   
+                       "Button-Bar"    Module  FvwmButtons
+                       "Clean-Up"      Module  FvwmClean
+                       "Identify"      Module  FvwmIdent
+                       "SaveDesktop"   Module  FvwmSave
+                       "Debug"         Module  FvwmDebug
+                       "Pager"         Module  FvwmPager 0 1
+                       "WinList"       Module  FvwmWinList
+                       "Background"    Module  FvwmBacker
+                       "IconBox"       Module  FvwmIconBox
+                       "Banner"        Module  FvwmBanner
+                       "Talk"          Module  FvwmTalk
+                       "Prompt"        Module  FvwmPrompt "hello" raise

Looks like it issued a prompt then executed an Fvwm command.

I don't remember FvwmClean either.
