I'm pretty sure when I upgraded from slink that my window manager
settings were silently ignored and I had to explore for a while to
figure out about the new update-alternatives setup. (I could be
misremembering, though.)

Joe Schmoe User is not going to have a chance in hell of figuring out
how to use update-alternatives to set their window manager, and now
that /etc/X11/window-managers is silently ignored.. well, it's not a
happy situation. :)
