    Unfortunately it does not answer the question of why this sort of thing is at all necessary to make a default WM/DE tolerable.

    (I know, I know, Gnome3 is new, and it will get better, just like KDE did when that project dropped a bomb a while back…)

    Here’s hoping that Gnome3 achieves a powerful, intuitive, discoverable default version in the near future (by 3.2, dammit!).
