Umm... I have though of trying my hand at the X11 tutorial on creating
a simply window manager, but never got around to it. The last time
(years ago) when I tried to compile 'fpwm', I managed to get it to
compile, but didn't know how to test/run it.

Could you give some hints on the latter, or is there a readme file in
the fpwm project that explains this?  How do I temporarily test a new
window manager? I'm using Ubuntu, and have quite a few window managers
available from GDM (sessions menu), but I have no idea how those
options got there, or how to add my own. :-)
