Upon reading my bit about blowing there minds today I realise it sounds
a bit more extreme than I intended it.  I meant to get across that an
impressive display will do much for the image.  

As I posted earlier, *if*, and that really is a big *if*, E is used I
would like to create an entire theme for SEUL.  Something that says
"this is definately not WinBlows".

E has been reworked so it isn't a resouce hog any more.  It still has
bugs in it, but it may be stable by the time SEUL is released.

I think, although I have used it for over a year without problems, that
you may be right about Afterstep.  FVWM2 should be looked at above
Afterstep.  I haven't checked WindowMaker yet, but has the capability
for an impressive display and also has some GUI configuration aspects I
want to give serious consideration.

Would somebody out there like to install the latest WindowMaker, push it
to it's limits, and report on it's useability/configureabilty/stability?
