Personally, I like the unix style philosophy of a single tool for a single
task, and do it well...
and while having a clock incorporated into wmx might be usefull at times,
and heaven knows I don't object to more clocks around the place (I have
one in my bash prompt) ... I would persodnally disable a clcok if one were
built into wmx...
Again, IMHO, if you DID want to decode a clock into wmx, then at he top of
a menu would be better than part of the titlebar... :)

pie menu's are really only a good design for a menu that isn't going to
change. so it's not practical for a window-list menu IMHO - though for an
application list menu, it'd be pretty cool. Apart from a brief glance at
an early version of UDE, I've not really played with pie menus, though
I've seen a few screenshots around hte place too :)
I like hte idea, but hey, I'm only a user - not a coder... ;)
