Tnx, Nate.  There's nothing there that I just hafta have.  I usually
call files from the app rather than have the file start the app, and
icewm's look is consistent enough for me.  The primary need here for X
lies in browsers.  I'll have 7 or 8 open at a time to test web pages.
Now, if you have a quick/simple/direct way to copy/cut/paste between X
and console...
