I was too... but the more I use it, the more I notice that it has odd
issues.  For example, tooltips don't always work correctly, and
sometimes it gets focus stuck on a window and won't refocus until that
window goes away.  It doesn't happen very often, admittedly, but I don't
want to have to worry about my window manager wigging out in the middle
of the work day.

I do like the idea of a Lisp scriptable Window mangler, though.
Possibly because I'm insane.

I just like that it's very simple, and appears to work well.
