That would work just swell.

Well, actually, that would all be automatic -- wmx should just look for
$HOME/.wmx-$DISPLAY as an addendum to $HOME/.wmx.  But, like you said,
I can always implement that myself if I really want it :)  Does anybody
else think this would be a useful feature, or would it be too bloated for
the simple wmx paradigm?

I don't use pixmaps -- there aren't enough colors in my color table for me
to afford that -- so I wouldn't have seen the bug.  :-p
