Your fokr weeks is (more than) up! :) I just wanted to give you a heads up 
that Caelian in #GNUstep now has comitt access to the WM2 branch of 
WindowMaker, which is where all the good changes are going. Maybe we can 
work together on this. One long-needed modification was recently made to 
GNUstep itself which sets a hint for pixmap icons so that windowmaker 
retains the icon of a gnustep appicon in the dock after the gnustep 
aplication has terminated. It's the little things like this that make 
WindowMaker more pleasant to use..
