You misinterpret Uriel here. Uriel has never been involved in dwm,
basically all statements on this page were more or less a summary
towards wmii, why I abandoned it in favor for a lighter WM. IMHO Uriel
disagreed for quite a long time with the dwm approach, maybe he still
does. dwm has been created because I disagreed with Uriels wmii
vision, which seemed to be a never ending story.
