In most cases it is. Figure if your computer would only run if a
certain type of power plant was delivering the electricity...

I really don't see that suckless == as few LOCs as possible. For me
that is seldom the case. Suckless == most user friendly and minimize
unnecessary repetitive work. In case of dwm it is the window layout.
Almost no more window moving/resizing in the floating sense. That is
suckless for me. Not the size of dwm.

So if dwm will make it possible for different implementations depending
on needs it would be very nice. I don't want pango as default, but I
have at least one computer I would need it on or I will have to choose
another wm.

Best wishes
