Where was everybody else, was my question.

Absolutely.  I think it goes without saying that things can, and most
likely, will change over time.  I just want to get something together to
work with.

It's a compartmented distro.  I'm the UI leader.  I give my input in the
other areas, but my job is to get the GUI together and mold it.  Has
nothing to do with putting the cart before the horse.

I need to find out what the GUI's are going to be like to know what
needs to be done in the begining.  With WM2 we don't need any probing. 
If I start with probing, I've wasted time in that area.  Besides,
installation is another department, as far as routines etc.

This department is concerned with the GUI the other stuff will use.  So
there's not a hell of a lot we have to worry about, as far as
conflicting.

I'm happy to hear some input though.  It's appreciated.
