Hi Eduard and thanks for the input. If I follow your comment
correctly, I think that's exactly my point. Fluxbox has a tiny profile
and offers up excellent windows management on Xorg. It doesn't do much
else. But, it does give one a blank slate to define all the other user
interfaces. This is normally done with helper packages such as tint2
or virtual windows pagers.

Gnome et al one the other hand uses the kitchen sink approach of
throwing everything you could possible imagine into a windows manager
and, thus, comes in with a much larger profile.
