gnome-wm suggestion

I have a suggestion for the gnome-wm script. Since this script saves the current $WINDOW_MANAGER to the gconf registry, why not get that value back at the beginning and use it as the default? This patch still respects a user-set $WINDOW_MANAGER value if it exists, otherwise it fetches the current default window manager from the gconf registry. (personally, I never figured out where I was supposed to set $WINDOW_MANAGER, which is why I do it this way)
