This works fantastically. In the meanwhile, i had been looking at the
symlinks in /proc. Because Linux r0xors so much (as some would say),
I could `make uninstall` in the old source tree, with the old window-
manager still running (as a reference to it and its inode still
existed on disk), and then `make install` in the new source tree and
then restart. Voila!! Cat'ing the /proc/pid/exe symlink shows the
new executable running. How sweet is that!!
Thanks for the help.
