Marius, I like this a lot.

One question: would a and b be presented to openbox identically?
a) foo.bar.bummy
b) foo { bar { bummy } }

I definately think we should implement this. I'm thinking we need at
least 3 libraries:
librender - the low level rendering stuff (Xlib and GL) which the WM uses
            for window frames
          - the higher level rendering stuff which tools/apps/WM can use

libcwmcc  - routines for getting/setting icccm and netwm
            properties/information. similar to the libwnck? that is part of
			the gnome project

libsomethin - contain this parsing stuff for both the WM to use for the rc3,
              librender to use for themes, and tools could use for their own
			- other stuff that can be used by the WM, librender, and or

libotk - i'm not sure about this one, but it could be built using the
         high level interface in librender and libcwmcc. some of the things
		 that could go in here could also be placed into the other libs

I am damn unsatisfied to be killed in this way.
