I think is is a waste of resources to write another WM. If there are free  
resources, somebody may #ifdef out all the code that is not needed for  
GNUStep. But I think there are other things that are more important.

* write new cool apps like
  * Quantrix clone
  * Terminal clone
  * PrintManager clone
  * FileMerge clone

* support many UNIX platforms and win32
* make it easy to install (configure && make install should work without  
messing with CFLAGS and LDFLAGS)

Another cool feature for GS would be a way to configure the look & feel of  
the UI in later versions.
