If anybody is interested in getting GNOME support for blackbox,
they should probably contact the blackbox people and suggest
that complaining on their web site won't help get
the spec improved.
If they want the WM spec fixed, then they need to contact
those responsible (I'd mail gnome-devel-list) and indicate
what is lacking in the description and what needs
improvement in the spec.
