Well, now that you mentioned it... ;)

I've heard comments that wmx would be nice if it didn't use shapes, but
boring rectangular tabs only, like BeOS. But I like the current look and
probably won't mess around with it.

Heck, I've been happy with wmx since release 3 or so ;)
I have mixed feelings about the recent developments, though. Technically
SvOlli's (hope I got that right) new patch concerning mouse buttons.
The default bindings have worked for n years and I see no reason to fiddle
around. OTOH, there might be systems that can't emulate a third button
on a two button mouse or something.

Then again, I don't use the dConfig stuff either, YMMV :)

Agreed. And a new sec<something> release wouldn't hurt. Not to belittle
what Sven is doing but if I recall correctly, he's putting it all
together. And who knows if Sec has something good up his sleeve coming up.

Sec, are you there?
