The largest single problem is that WindowMaker is currently part of GNUstep
in name only, really, not being ObjC or using any GNUstep libs.  IWM doesn't
seem that far from working, although I would be far happier making that
statement if it were better documented so new coders had an easier time
helping it.  As long as talented programmers aren't hacking IWM, it's never
going to become ready for daily use and WMaker remains the offical WM
despite not being really GNUstep beside looks.  Therefore, talented
programmers suggest hacking WMaker rather than IWM and round it all goes.

Not true. You can use nib2gmodel to translate nibs, although the 
translation isn't always perfect.
