Personally, I dislike this change. Other Window Managers do not have an xterm
on the main menu, when menu is installed. Could it be set so you have the
standard debian menu + exit, when menu is present, and xterm, restart, and
exit when menu is not installed.

Again, I preferred it the other way, I do not think other Window Managers
display a exit menu of this style.

I liked the orange, it was funky.

They were cool as well, without them it looks to much like Windows 95, maybe
that is the `best' button layout, but I am unconvinced.

Why? I would recommend you have menu installed, it is only small, and fvwm is
a lot my useful with it installed.

Fortunately, I managed to save my system.fvwm2rc before it was replaced, I
wonder whether the previous version (or just the colours and buttons) could 
appear in /usr/doc/fvwm/examples/

I consume, therefore I am
