I don't know what kind of beast fvwm2-PLUS is but if you mean fvwm2
I think it is not a good idea to orphane it. It was my first window
manager under Linux and I never had any reason to leave it. I don't
switch my window manager like a T-shirt and I don't need "cool"
windowmanager whatever this should mean. I know *how* to configure
it and don't want to learn any other thing. I would hope really strong
that it will stay in Debian!
