Frustratingly, I still can’t quite figure out how to make the size/position
constraints
in metacity work properly. I wonder if I’ll end up
having to do one of those “constraint solvers” other window managers
seem to have.

Why aren’t more desktop hackers coding support for managing
desktops? Improving
gconf
, integrating with Kerberos/LDAP to support user policies,
fixing up integration with file/print servers, this type of thing.
Lots of the coding here is pretty fun, at least I think so.
