I always liked fvwm. I take it -crystal adds something to that. When I 
last tried fvwm, The menu had to be hand rerolled after installing a new 
application for it to appear in the menu, though the utility for doing so 
did seem to get it right.

gnome and xfce (which both use the same broken system menu config file) do 
not work well and the menu editors that go with them are both not that 
good. KDE's old style menu works quite well. (their menu config is 
correct) It is unfortunate that the freeddesktop site has the same bad 
file as an example on their web site though the following paragraphs make 
it plain it wouldn't work.
