NOTE: Blackbox is NOT and probably WILL NOT include GNOME support. It
   is my opinion that the GNOME Window Manager Spec needs to be
   revised, as the current (quote) specification (post quote) seems to
   be more implementation based. A near complete rewrite and
   restructuring of Blackbox's internals would be necessary to
   implement the (quote) specification (post quote) as is.
