Someone else already mentioned, this, but as far as I know there's only
one WM menu doesn't support (gwm). All the others (about 10 or so) are

The intend certanly was that Window Managers should "Suggest: menu (>= 1.3)".
(the 1.3 thing is because that allows them to use the new menu-methods
format, that's mutch nicer/better than the old (still supported) format).

Absolutely. That was one of the main things I had in mind when working
on menu. A WM not working at all without menu should be reported as
a bug. Note, however, that some malfunction of the "menu-less" window-manager
menus should be expected, the maintainer of the WM never knows what
packages you have installed. So you should expect some buttons not
to work.
