This is a cute solution, however there are a lot of window managers,
which are almost like that with a little bit of added comfort. WMI was
mentioned, other alternatives might include Ion or evilwm, which is
Tom's WM of choice, AFAIK. Evilwm even is included as a packet forth
module in latest pdp cvs, for those, who like to take it to the extreme.
:) Evilwm already is available as a Python module, which is what I also
played with. I like the idea of starting X without WM, just a Python
shell in a terminal, then doing a 

import EvilWM
e = EvilWM.WM

or similar. Good to shock friends who complain about Linux not being
user friendly. It's so nerdy. ;)
