Could be, that X doesn't allow it to be more unixy, and like I said,
if you don't want to change the configuration, you could say dwm is
just a simple window manager.

But as the task for most people on this list is configuring it like
crazy, I don't think one should consider dwm unixy in this use case,
it's not flexible enough. Perhaps someone should write a window
manager consisting of some very simple and small binaries. But I
admit, I would not know where to start (I will stick to wmii and it's
9p server approach).

just my 2 euros
