OK, I had a reasonably quiet day at work, so I spent it configuring fvwm 2
(the slink version, as that was what I had). It took most of the day to do
it... the docs aren't that great. I also found that the README.sysrc was
not always completely accurate; it's frustrating when you read about how
to add stuff with init.hook, and it says:

            See the fvwm2 manual page for details (the AddToFunction

and there's no such command (it's called AddToFunc I since discovered).
There are a couple of other things that also aren't quite right, but
looking into the system.fvwm2rc cleared those up (sorry, can't recall
now what the problem was exactly).

I have a couple of other things that feel like bugs, but I'll suspend
judgement until I try out the official 2.2 version. So far it looks like
I can drop fvwm 1, however :-)
