I know you want bonobo menu API. ;-) I don't want that patch right
now, though, for a variety of reasons I will carefully not bring
up. ;-)

I really wish they were. I thought Federico was going to hack on it,
but now I heard he isn't, I don't know if that's true.

Sawfish is very much the window manager for GNOME 2. Even if people
wanted to use Metacity, it won't be shippable for months. It is
missing key stuff and is buggy as hell. I regret that so many people
are using it, but at the same time I understand why they are, since I
wrote it specifically because I wanted to use it. :-/

There must be someone out there who loves Lisp, loves the idea of an
extensible window manager, who wants to put in a few anti-bitrot
Sawfish patches...  we just have to find that person...
