I have a small suggestion here.  Since ~/.wmx may contain both config
options and menu entries, I think things can get a little confusing.
Is it worth cleaning this up a bit?  Here are a couple ideas:

  1) make all the option keywords (like "options," and "colors" mentioned
     above) start with a dot.  E.g. ~/.wmx/.options, ~/.wmx/.colors

  2) break it all out into subdirectories:  ~/.wmx/menu, ~/.wmx/config,

I like #2 a little better, but it may be premature to do anything like
this at all.  It's not like we have a _lot_ of keywords.
