One of the things which has begun to worry me recently is the fact that
WindowMaker seems to be becomming a bit of a dead end. It's our "official"
window manager isn't it ? Yet it still doesnt work right in 64 bit mode,
and the development lists seem very dead (aside from the recnt flurry of
people wanting to fork off something).

One upon a time I am sure there was a bundle someone made for GNUStep
which enabled any application to act as a window manager. It would be very
nice if such a thing could be incorporated into GSWorkspace so I
could have an entirely GNUStep system - and as a bonus it would quit
when GSWorkspace exitted just like nextStep used to.

Is the bundle still around, and is this a practical thing to think
of doing ?

-bat. [still unable to run entirely 64 bit due to Windowmaker]
