Name change is no problem.

The motivatyion for writing this pager is to avoid hacking Fvwm. Most
of the Gnome properties for Fvwm could be handled by this pager. My
plan is to make the module available without a GUI, so that the icewm
pager or any other thing can run. Another point is that i love to make 
windowd change workspaces. This can't be done if the pager don't
display the windows. I admit that it is sometimes a little bit
problematic to fetch the correct window (they can be rather small) but 
generally it works okay.

By the way:

I just learned that clicking on gmc icons on the root window switches
me back to the desktop where gmc was started, instead of openeing a
new browser on the currently active desktop. Any hints?
