I'd say being 'lispy' is something most definitely positive, but that's
probably a matter of taste, so not a subject of sensible further

I tried ratpoison ages ago and didn't like it for reasons I can't
remember (perhaps I was too underdeveloped myself in the GUI department
at the time), and I have yet to test drive stumpwm, but I'm leaving that
for a moment when I have some spare time.
