I was actually talking about FVWM2, sorry.  It is improved over FVWM but
still has that look of a pastel sketch of a window manager.  It's great
for doing resource intensive work, where you want every bit of your
resouces you can get and functionality of a good window manager.

You can change the fonts and the colors but other than that you are
still stuck with a plain jane window manager.  There's no doubt in my
mind it will be available in optional.  If it had the ability to add
custom graphics as E does, and had a GUI config, as E does, there would
be no question about which WM we use.  At least in my mind.
