Hmm, I don't think we have to worry.  We won't look like
'95 if we don't pick qvwm or fvwm-95 for a default wm,
so I'd suggest to pick applications based on their
usefulness for end-users.  I tink an explorer clone isn't
the worst in this respect.  If something better comes along,
we should be free to switch at any time, of course :O)

IMO we should look into different options just as we
would for other apps, possibly write some reviews, list
feautures, etc.

For a none-Qt explorer clone, check out the fOX project.
