Okay, that seems to me exactly the point we have to agree on, to make cooperation
work. Couldn't we try to settle on the libraries supported? If we all share the
same libraries we tackle our first problem.
I have seen lot of efforts on the net to give certain libraries a certain look
and feel. Let's say we all agree on atleast supplying:
Qt, GTK and Tcl/Tk
Then we could use e.g. GTKstep, neXtaw, Tkstep to nextify those libraries for
Window Maker.

And you could do the same to K-ify the libraries.

This way we share some common libraries, bu everyone can do with it as he likes.
This would also mean that an helper written by one of the groups (LED, LaetOS,
Independece) can be used on the other distro.
