Somehow I'm not surprised. What is it about low-level
libraries that seems make developers throw their common
sense to the four winds? Its one reason I like Python...the
entire language is based around the premise of providing
simple and easy to use interfaces without sacrificing

If I can convince WMII to behave how I want (I'm still
impressed with it, BTW....I *very* much like the concept), I
might settle for that as close enough to my ideal...for now. ;)
