OK Thanks - got that OK.

Thanks also to Dana.

Is there any sort of timescale for getting this stable?

Is there anyway I could help? (not much of a programmer but willing to
try). Do you have a target of where you hope 'config' will end up?

I know that the guys at ROX are looking for a new default WM and are
interested in openbox as a possibility. It fits very well with the ROX
philosophy of small and light.
