Ugh, yuk.

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.
