Hi. So that bhlfs doesn't get carried away with xorg apps and their deps I

or GNome. I'm thinking vtwm is a good choice. Twm's main short-coming is the 
lack of virtual desktops, which is solved in vtwm. It has a good track record 
and doesn't add any suid programs. I think the homepage is:

Sound fair?
