retitle 356948 stumpwm: clarify how to start this WM in the README.Debian
thanks

Hello!

For d-d: I'd like a more general advice about the user request, which
I'm quite reluctant to accomplish.

For all: please honor the R-T and M-F-T headers (no need to cc: me).

Well, as I already explained in my previous reply [1], you need a
specific background in Common Lisp to use this WM.  Moreover, the
package section is specifically set to "devel" and not "x11" as most
of the other WMs.

I think that this is a problem not only for stumpwm, but for all the
Common Lisp software.

I'm still here, just asking more help from the fellow developers ;-)
