I know, but it is not what I really mean. I don't like the idea that WM (or any 
other window manager) is controlling the GNUstep environment. Also there are 
other WMs out there which perhaps do not have nice session management and 
someday we can perhaps use GS on non-X platforms as well. I believe that a 
handy tool or script, which launches the GNUstep environment (GWorkspace being 
a central part of it) as well as X et al. would make things a lot easier, esp. 
for such persons who would like to 'just test GNUstep' - I made the experience 
that most of them expected GNUstep to be sth like 'an entire GNU-NEXTSTEP' and 
not just an API plus a set of tools/scripts. And it would indeed be nice if one 
could type .i.e. './initgnustep' and everything would magically appear, no...;-)
