Bug#155680: [ PROPOSAL ] bump priority of window managers which support WMSP
The attached patch should speak for itself. This came about because
users would often install 'x-window-system' (installs twm) and 'gnome2'
(installs metacity) in order to get a GNOME 2 desktop, but twm had a
higher alternatives priority than metacity. I think this is wrong,
because at least metacity will work with the standard desktop hinting
systems...twm basically makes GNOME 2 (and presumably KDE) unusable.
