I recently added qutebrowser to the "rocks" page and it was
subsequently removed[1]. I accept that, though it raises a few

Is that page for software (more or less) adhering to the suckless
philosophy, or is it (or at least the "application" section) about
things *working well with dwm* like the introduction suggests?

    Some programs work well with dwm. Some general rules of thumb
    for judging a programs as usable are: [...]

If it's the former and (at least according to the log of removed stuff
in general) this is mostly about the language something is implemented

Why are Firefox addons (Vimperator/VimFX) written in
Coffescript/Javascript considered suckless? Or if you want to go even
further: Why is there stuff in there using glib (in a non-GTK
context)? After all that's listed on the top of sucks.md ;)
