hmmm...well menu already has the "wm" bit and if wm's create a menu entry using
this that would allow for singling them out.  menu also has the ability to
do just about anything theoretically and would require no other programs 
except for customized menu-methods for each dm provided by the dm's.

I don't see a reason why it can't be used.  It's a *MUCH* cleaner approach than
using the alternatives list and allows for proper names (ie.. Gnome vs.
