Re: [wmx] antialiased fonts, Subversion, etc

funny, getting wmx to work with gnome/kde/etc is close to the top of
my list again (for the same reason)

i'm 95% sure that the gnome stuff in there now is out-of-date. the "new"
desktop spec should be looked at if we want wmx to play nice with
others (not a huge priority)
