A couple of years ago, Enlightenment was - let's say - favoured 
as the most GNOME compliant WM. So E was widely shipped with GNOME 
and became something like the default WM for GNOME for a while. 
More recently Sawfish is becoming the unofficial official WM for GNOME, 
to the point that Helix/Ximian bundles it with its GNOME distribution. 
IIRC, the rationale behind this decision was that E came along with 
too much functionality overlapping and interfering with GNOME.

So, one cannot completely dismiss the objections of the orinal poster.
