I didn't get this original mail, so I will answer to the reply...

I like the iconbox-patch, which is included in fvwm2-plus, but except
from this, I prefer the fvwm2 package, which seems to be a bit more up 
to date...
So I still use my locally patched fvwm2 (only added the iconbox
patch), which I used before I found fvwm2-plus.

I think, it shouldn't be a problem to remove fvwm2-plus at least when
looking for fvwm 2.1.*, which is in alpha phase at the moment, because 
this has the iconbox patch (and some other new features) included
(only the new border coloring algorithm creates ugly colors, but this
may be a feature...).
