Yeah, I realized that right after submitting the bug.  I agree; let's
make it 20.

Well, again, people who want a specific WM have the ability to frob
~/.xsession.  Besides, I don't think we could even attempt to define
what is "*best*" in a window manager; at this point, there are probably
more window managers out there than there are GNU/Linux users.  Our
overriding goal should be to have a WM which at least functions somewhat
acceptably in the largest possible number of situations as the default
for x-window-manager.  KDE and GNOME make up a very significant portion
of today's situations.

It's not like I'm proposing "Add 20 points if the WM includes a
multithreaded Lisp interpreter, animated titlebars with cute little
Debian swirls, and 32768 virtual desktops."
