--replace ? Seems a wrapper script suffices.

Isn't it sufficient to run WMs from a wrapper script? If it's powered 
by a gui with radio buttons to choose WM, then it'd be great.

Wrapper example:


CMD=`cat $NEXT_WM` 2>/dev/null

while [[ -x $CMD  ]]; then
      OPT=`cat $NEXT_WM_OPTION` 2>/dev/null
      rm -f $NEXT_WM $NEXT_WM_OPTION
      $CMD $OPT
      CMD=`cat $NEXT_WM` 2>/dev/null
