I acually meant to put them that order. Do not understand why it
endup the other way.(:

I guess that mean, that for now starting applications, and exit from
wm should be disabled (no applications and exit buttons in wm
menus). That reminds kde setup, where kwm does not have menu to launch
applications. I guess it might be usefull to have simple examples of
~/.Xclient, ~/.xsession and /etc/X11/xdm/Xsession files, as well as
simple, GNOME compatible twmrc, fvwmrc, fvwm2rc, and etc. I'll do it.
