Wmii should not try to handle broken applications if that would mean
to break the good design. Nobody really wants to have lots of kludges
and special cases in the code to handle different behaviour of
programs. An example for software developed to keep application
compatibility over ages is windows. And nobody would want to have crap
like this.

About the programming language: everybody should be free to choose
whatever he likes. But one should really take time to choose carefully
to not make a bad decision based only on personal favour.

@garbeam: Will there be a max layout in next snap again? I'm only
asking because I didn't hear a clear statement about it.

Microsoft is simply one example of a proprietary software developer, a
software developer that tries to subjugate users to keep them divided
and helpless. -- Richard M. Stallman
