Thanks for your response, I'll try digging into this. And I'll be happy
if somewhen perl scripting will be available, too, probably using swig
as python scripting does :)
I was really impressed with the openbox2, when I tried it, but right now
I'm using WindowMaker. and somewhen I read in todo's that WM-like
miniwindows should be somewhen supported (instead of slit in
bb/openbox2). Then I should definitely move into it :)
Well, have a good luck in developing OpenBox. It has a very good look
and I believe the scripting is a very useful approach.

WBR, Balkin Ruslan
