Frustratingly, I still can’t quite figure out how to make the size/position
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
, 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.
