No!  gmc crashes constantly for me!  Don't know why!
Of course, this is temporary I'm sure...but "we should enforce the use of"
makes me nervous anyway.

I wouldn't disagree, per se, except to caution that anything that the
window manager is *required* to turn off for gnome should be able to be
turned back on by the user.  Why?  Sometimes, the WM simply does a better
job than gnome, and a user who knows they're doing won't want to be
restricted by requirements like that.  For example, E allows different
desktop backgrounds for each virtual desktop, something which the Gnome
control panel doesn't do (as far as I know).
