That was my plan. 

Sorry for not popping in earlier, I have just subscribed to this list
after receiving Bernie's message.

Basically it should not be to hard to get Openbox working: 
      * Window decoration can be turned of. I guess this is what we want
        for most windows. 
      * Supports window matching rules: 
        default windows -> fullscreen + no decoration 
        dialogs -> centered, on top, ... 
      * I already have the OLPC specific keyboard shortcuts from the
        work I did with LXDE
      * It can be started with different config files

I'm going to work on this, help and comments welcome.
