I like it, because it helps prevent you from pointlessly
reconfiguring your window manager every other day. Of course
I liked the older versions without any runtime configuration
better, but I can see why some people might want it. (And after
all, there's always wm2.)

Always an approximation, although wmx-5 was certainly stabler

How about calling the next one wmx-6 ? Preferably with the gnome
stuff, provided that's now reasonably stable. If you hurried, you
could make a new major release before I'd even got a unix box to
test it on, thus making the wmx-5 to wmx-6 transition one in which
I had absolutely no part whatsoever.
