Perhaps each window manager could ask a question similar to
mime-support's "priority" regarding which window manager one wants. Of
course, this question would only be asked once on initial install.
Does xbase support a mechanism like install-info or install-mime for
adding a window manager to /etc/X11/window-managers? Should it?
BTW, I think install-info is one of our coolest features. Ever try
running info on Red Hat 3.x? install-mime is harsher on the novice
(or even the experienced admin) because of its annoying UI.
