Why can't the GNOME project take a windowmanager-agnostic position? Give
people a list of the ones that work and are compliant and then let them
choose rather than specifically recommending one.

I don't think that either Raster or Mandrake have said that they don't
intend to remain compliant with the GNOME WM spec - they put quite a bit of
effort into 0.16 to make it KDE compliant too.

Personally, I have no desire to use anything other than Enlightenment unless
the others get a lot better, so I would be fairly annoyed if GNOME 2
demanded sawmill as a dependancy. I would be similarly annoyed if E wasn't
compliant though.
