Me too, except I'm losing hope for the X window system itself -- how much more cruft will have to be grafted onto it to make this old dog perform new tricks?

On the flip side I could use programable (and rather more automated) window management in Plan 9. I don't know how much of the sawfish code base would be useful. The *.jl files under lisp/sawfish/wm total 6 times as large as the *.[ch] of rio which performs many of the tasks of the window system as well as window management and has a built-in terminal of sorts. OTOH all of sawfish's compatibility code & a bit more besides could be junked. It's a bit of a stretch to think about porting sawfish but I could use decent window placement, window matching, and a host of other things.
