There's obviously a tradeoff. FWIW we'd decided to take the Nautilus
approach for gnome-fm before it ever became Nautilus - I don't
remember all the reasons unfortunately. Maybe someone else does.

All the problems you mention can be worked around eventually, apps
just have to be desktop-aware. They can be aware of the "desktop
manager" in a gnome/kde-independent way using the WM spec.

Worked around? Why fix it if it ain't broke? If you'd read the link I posted the other day, you'd see that all the things that you are aiming for are easily possible WITHOUT borking up the root window!

Anti-aliased text and even TRANPARENCY are available with X4.0.3 and Xrender. (And don't complain that X4 is too new. Everything else that Nautilus uses is cutting edge and just about every major distro now offers the option of X4.)
