Scripting is a good thing if it can enhance software for some of the
people that use it. I'm just arguing against leaving things out of
the main package that probably should be there because people can
always just script them in. This, of course, is a judgement call. I
shouldn't have to script anything to make the window manager livable
is all I'm saying. I have no trouble writing scripts for little
quirks or odd features that enhance something that is generally good
