Well, it's nice. It's sort of an enlightenment/SCWM hybrid, that the GNOME
people want to use for a "default" WM.
As long as some window managers die, another is OK :)

It's very cool. You can write your own complex functions, in LISP, and
have access to all of the wm's internal variables...like LISTS of windows
LISTS of key bindings and LISTS of decorations.
