GNUstep Window Manager (was RE: Idea)

well, I have thought about that a little bit in the past... It would certainly
a big plus to have a WM written in ObjC which could offer tight integration
into GS with less effort. 
What I will do (*if* I find some time...grin) is to dive a little bit into the
blackbox WM code. Since this is C++ I wonder if it could be 'converted' into
ObjC in a first step. In a second step - and after learning some X basics - all
the GS specific enhancements could then be integrated and the code cleaned up.

What do you think?

cheers, Phil
