Isn't this somewhat in line with being able to configure the
session manager to startup non-SM aware applications.  Since, if
I'm not mistaken netscape for example is not session aware.  At
least under KDE it couldn't be restarted by its session manager. 
BTW, I haven't looked at gsm in a while so forgive me if this
feature is currently included.  A WM is just another application
as far as X is concerned.
